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.

Creamy and earthy; here's a Scottish blend if ever one was to be had. Unabashedly a tea to fill pot after pot with, this has all the makings of a table-ful of smiles on a Scottish afternoon. But there's more to this blend. Indeed this tisanal hails not only from Caledonian hills but also from China. Two nation's whose characters mix into an altogether unique, burnt sweetness.
Charmaine Houck Review Scottish Caramel Puerh with her son. He liked it so much, he helps himself to second cup with no coaching from Mom.
Often noted for its gardenial, hillside earthiness; this loose tea's collection is a lungful and one for a discussion. From China comes this tea's more curiously healthy tinges. That's right: even in a decadent cupful of Scottish Caramel black tea, one finds a sharpness that it's said relates to the tea's slimming, sprightly properties. One's pulse needn't be the only thing that quickens at the prospect of this loose tea. Indeed a general liveliness is its companion and chief result. Whether you feel this is due to the delicious creamy weight or the luxurious Chinese additions to the collection; you're sure get a lift from Scottish Caramel black tea.
Enjoy it hot with whatever hillside is nearest your window. If you're lucky, it might very well be China or Scotland. If not: do your homeland the favour of appreciating it while sipping this delicious blend.
Puerh loose tea brings a deeep earthy mouthfeel; a robustness that is deeply satisfying for coffee lovers. Try it as your morning tea or a satisfying after-dinner drink. The caramel flavor is the clincher for this loose tea.

Organic Tea and Caramel
Years ago I tasted an organic Scottish Caramel Pu-erh in Canada that was the most delicious tea I had ever tasted. I was able to get it by mail for awhile, but then the shop that sold it went out of business. Ever since than I have been trying to find a decent version of this tea. I've ordered tea from 6 different vendors. Some of them were decent, some of them really bad, but none of them came close to the quality of that first one. I'm happy to say that Good Life's version is as good the tea I had in Canada all those years ago. If you are looking for a decent Scottish Caramel Pu-erh tea, this is the best you can get, at least in my experience.
If you are a huge fan of black tea, specifically pu-erh, then you'll probably like this. I've tried pu-erh in the past, Teavana's Weigh to Go and Numi's bricks, and the Good Life Tea's quality seems to match the others but I can't get past the slightly putrid smell and taste. I found the other brands to also be offensive but the Tevana version included lots of berries, florals, and other flavors, making it a bit more palatable and even enjoyable as an after dinner drink. So, I'll just stick with oolong, rooibos, and herbal teas from now on.
Tried a new tea and love it! Love the free samples and I share them with my friends. Great packaging and always speedy delivery.
I love this tea! It is a must try!
This is our favorite tea! I’ve lost count of how many pounds we have bought but each cup is delicious!
