All teas are not brewed the same. The act of brewing tea is part of the tea ceremonyto fully appreciate a quality cup of tea, one must brew it properly. For black teas and tisanes, bring the water to a full boil (approx. 212F), and steep for 4-5 minutes. These leaves can be re-infused a second time. For Oolong teas, bring the water to just under a boil (approx. 180F-200F) and steep for 1-2 minutes, repeating up to 5 more infusions. For green and white teas, the water should be between 160F and 180F. Green tea should steep for 1-3 minutes and white tea for 2-3 minutes, and also can be re-infused a second time. Measure one level teaspoon of loose tea into the infuser for each cup desired. Pour prepared water over tea and steep. Remove the infuser, sip slowly and enjoy!
