• Fast Way to Brew a Perfect Cup of Tea with the RIGHT water temperature


    Do not use boiling water for green or white teas, as the leaves will burn, creating a bitter taste.

    An easy way to estimate the water temperature is to bring the water to a boil, allow the water to cool down before pouring over the leaves.

    Wait approximately 30 seconds for white tea and 60 seconds for green tea before pouring over the leaves.


    To visualize the heated water temperatures suitable for white and green teas, the water will have small "crab eye" bubbles on the surface edges, oolong teas will have "fish eye" bubbles across the entire surface and the black teas, herbals and infusions will have "old man's water” a full, rolling boil.

    It is always best to brew the first pot according to the instructions given for each individual blend. Thereafter, you can adjust according to your personal taste.
