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.

Minted fresh. Rolling out of obscurity; here is the final word on all things flavorful. Perhaps. Because the order of taste belongs to tried and true schema. Thus a rich mint infusion of Chocolate Mint Rooibos may prove more preferential than a plain cup. Why not try it. Its a caffeine free tea, zero calorie dessert in a cup.
With the storied Rooibos at its core, Chocolate Mint stands to reason: both in terms of its primary collection and its flavor profile as a whole. You couldn't manufacture this if you wanted to: a deep Rooibos flavor; red in its appearance and full in its richness. Infused with a crisp mint. An unexpected visitor bringing a cool mist to the table even as chocolate fills it out. The final product is mellow and indescribable. Try to have someone put into words the Chocolate Mint Experience. One imagines that they'll find themselves unable. Bowed at the chalice of this blend's collection of flavor.
Culled from South Africa; Rooibos is carefully selected along with peppermint, and other additives. The warm, melty taste lingers log after the primaries fade. This is a luxurious, full-bodied tea to be enjoyed in the morning, afternoon, or evening: a lush experience of the rooibos world provided in a delicate, firmly-flavored packet.
Base leaf: Rooibos
Health properties: Anti-oxidant properties known, weight management properties.

Chocolate Mint Rooibos is a caffeine free tea.
I am thoroughly surprised by how good this is! I had purchased some of this tea this past summer and kept it saved in a tin until now. At first, all I really tasted was the strong mint, but then the smooth chocolate taste came through at the end. They blend so nicely. I prefer this rooibos chocolate mint over the chocolate mint black tea (since it came as a free sample). I was always a huge fan of Teavana's rooibos white chocolate peppermint tea, and while this tea is not exactly the same, it's a close as you can get to perfection. The mint taste is much more pronounced in this tea as it is actual mint and not peppermint. I usually prefer peppermint over mint (since in my opinion it tastes more like the peppermint bark you get during the holidays), but I can't complain too much since it's still delicious. Definitely a solid 9.5 out of 10. Can't wait to drink more of this in December and on Christmas Eve!
Originally purchased the chocolate mint tea in December. My husband and I fell in love with it. Just received another order of it and it doesn’t seem quite the same. It doesn’t seem to have a lot of chocolate flavor. I will order it again to see if I feel the same. All in all I love your store! Love all the variety of teas!
Love this tea!
Bingo! I thought Caramel Rooibos was my favorite. Not anymore! Lovely balance of the chocolate and mint - and not too much of either.
To be honest I'm not a chocolate fan (I know it's crazy) but this is subtle and balanced with the mint and I actually really enjoyed it. Rooibos has become my new favorite type of tea. It's always relaxing and is great hot and cold.
