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|

Because the loose tea brews in the infuser inside the mug, 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 in 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 contain the finest leaves and spice particles making a crisp clear steep. The rigid stainless steel brewing basket will not flex and break like less expensive wire mesh baskets and can withstand a thorough dishwasher cleaning. Holes on the bottom make the basket easy to clean. This infuser makes your Oolongs, Rooibos and your Chais look and taste much better every time. How perfect!

The cup is made of high strength, borasilicate glass, commonly called Pyrex. The glass is tough enough for the hot temperatures, yet surprisingly light weight. Borasilicate glass can handle the rapid temperature change from boiling water and is less likely to break than ordinary, less expensive heavier tempered glass. This makes it a safer tea cup to use. The design is simply elegant. The gracious taper is beautifully counterpointed with the elegant handle which is spacious for easy holding but belies its actual size. Unlike molded glass in less expensive tea mugs, there are no sharp mold lines on the handle. No mold seams is a hallmark of high quality.
The crystal clear cup allows you to visually follow the steeping process. By monitoring the color of the tea as it brews in your mug, you can expertly craft your tea to your desired strength. Its simple to use. Now go and show off that beautiful Green Tea to the envy of your office friends!
This well designed kit is topped with a colorful silicone and stainless steel lid. While steeping your tea, the lid not only keeps your tea hot, the designer color lets you steep in style. The lid provides additional utility by preventing spills while you move around your home or from the office break room to your work area. Because silicone insulates, it keeps your tea hot, but remains cool to the touch for easy removal. 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 lip which will keep the run-off tea safely contained. This keeps your your table top dry with no drippings. How neat!
