There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter. If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times.
Below are general steeping instructions. For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle. When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

Luxurious as it is crisp, Ice Wine Black tea is, to a certain degree, the logical conclusion of the black tea collection. Unobtrusive and crisp, it gracefully sidesteps any concept of a complex profile in favor of providing one clear sensation.
Enjoy this black tea hot, cold, or in your uncle's socks. A pleasing, tasteful tea and an excellent gift.
Tea arrived quickly and was wonderful. W had only had white ice wine before. This was a nice twist.
This tea is a unique and delicious find. Not easy to find, but well worth the search. Thank you for carrying it!!
I ordered this as soon as I saw it because I love ice wine, but it does not taste like I expected. It is ok, but a bit flowery. I was expecting a bit more grape flavor. Wish I hadn't ordered 4 ounces.
This has a very unique taste in comparison to other teas. I love the grape flavor and hint of floral sweetness of the tea. It has an inviting aroma and even better taste. This was the first ice wine tea I've ever tried but I'm in love! I will definitely be purchasing this again!
