1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.
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.
|Tea Type||Steeping Temperature||Steeping Time|
|White Tea||170-185 F||1-3 minutes|
|Green Tea||170-185 F||2-3 minutes|
|Oolong Tea||170-190 F||2-3 minutes|
|Black Tea||200-212 F||3-5 minutes|
|Tisanes||212 F||4-7 minutes|
Fruit and herbal teas are also referred to as tisanes.
Because the loose tea steeps in the infuser inside the cup, no tea pot is needed. The food-grade stainless steel infuser sits on rim of the cup and completely covers the top of the cup and keeps the tea leaves in the infuser - not your cup. The over-sized infuser is deep and wide. The generous proportion of the infuser is perfect for larger leaves which need more space to unfurl to give you its full flavor. The hundreds of laser cut micro perforations covering the sides and bottom of the infuser allows maximum water circulation for full flavor but still contains the finest leaves and spice particles making a crisp clear steep. The deep infuser lets make smaller servings of tea. Some infusers are so shallow, requiring lots of water and wasting tea. The rigid stainless steel will not flex and break like less expensive wire mesh baskets and can withstand a thorough dishwasher cleaning. This infuser makes your Oolongs, Rooibos and your Chais look and taste much better every time. How perfect!

The ceramic cup is beautifully glazed in designer colors and is simply elegant. The gracious taper is beautifully counterpointed with the elegant handle which is spacious for easy holding but belies its actual size. This mug feels good to hold in your hand. The ceramic construction gives the cup some weight and keeps the tea warm for a long time. The cup is hard to chip and will not fade. The lead-free glaze makes the cup easy to clean, dishwasher and microwave safe. Five bright and cheery colors to choose from.
This well designed kit is topped with a matching ceramic lid. While steeping your tea, the lid not only keeps your tea hot, the designer colors lets you steep in style. The lid provides additional utility by preventing spills while you move around your home or from the break room to your office work area. Because ceramic insulates, it keeps your tea hot while it steeps. (Without a lid, you tea can loose much heat and become tepid.) As you remove the lid, inhale deeply and enjoy the wonderful aroma of your premium tea. But the utility of the colorful lid doesn't end there. After steeping, flip the lid upside down and your lid turns into a coaster for your infuser. You will notice that the lid has a slight lip which will keep the run-off tea safely contained. This keeps your your table top dry with no drippings. How neat!
These convenient tea makers are great for home or office. They're super easy to use. Highly recommended for your "me time"!
