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.

LEARN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A TEA KETTLE AND A TEAPOT.
Did you know making green or white tea requires a lower temperature than black tea? If rapidly boiling water is used, these teas can be bitter and quite disappointing. Our tea kettle offers 5 temperature settings to accommodate various teas. Selecting the correct temperature is easy. (See the product image.)
How many of us have over filled a stove top kettle so we don't burn the kettle if we get distracted? With our electric kettle you don't have to add more water than needed because the kettle stops heating at the desired temperature. Because less water is used, the heating cycle is shorter saving time and using less energy.
Has a whistling kettle made you dash back to the stove? With the convenient auto shut-off feature, there is no more dashing back to the stove to turn off the kettle. Best of all, our electric kettle maintains temperature until you're ready to pour.
Our kettle sits on the power base which plugs into an electric wall outlet. Because it is not tethered to the base it can be taken to your tea table. Set it next to your tea pot; it will make an exceptionally attractive addition to your tea table.
