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.

This would be an amazing summer and spring cold tea. I received the sample in the winter, but was excited to try something new and couldn't wait to try it warm. The fresh raspberry zing is awesome. I found that it needed about 2 tsp. of sugar and a slice of lemon. It was awesome. I imagined myself brewing a pot for summer on ice with some sugar and lemon slices. Really refreshing. Can't wait to try it again in warmer weather on ice. I will also say - I am not usually a fruity tea drinker (not even in warm weather) so to like this is really awesome!
