How to prepare tea

How to prepare tea

There are three main considerations when brewing tea.Tea quality, water temperature and steeping time.
Start by measuring 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup of fresh water. It is important to use fresh water as the tea will taste flat if not fresh.
Fluffier teas such as whites might require more than one teaspoon while dense teas such as Gunpowder may require less.
Steeping time is important, if tea is over steeped it can produce a bitterness. If you desire stronger tea, just use more tea.
Black 212 degrees F 3-5 minutes
Oolong 195 degrees F 4-7 minutes
Green & White 180 degrees F 2-3 min.
Herbal&Tisanes 212 degreesF 5-7 min
