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.

A sensuous blend of premium white tea with juicy high bush mountain blueberries rounds out a clean fresh finish, not to sweet, not too tart. Because this is a white tea, it has a delicate flavor, which is neither bitter nor astringent. Instead, white teas get to the very essence of what tea is. Their leaves are less processed than those of other teas, as they are plucked, and then immediately dried, with no other processing involved.
The blueberry notes of this tea are neither sweet, nor overpowering, but offer a subtle hint of berry. This is a tea designed for warm summer afternoons, reading a book in the sun.
Smooth with a hint of sweetness -- I love it iced.
This was such a hit in our house that my husband drank the whole pitcher in one day and only gave me one sip! Super yummy.
