Different teas have different nuances to brew the perfect cup. Ultimately, it is the consumer who determines their preferred characteristics, but there are a few guidelines to consider. The first is water temperature. Tea leaves are delicate and fragrant, and simply pouring a scalding cup of water over them can be detrimental to their efficacy. We recommend herbal teas to be introduced to water at 212 degrees fahrenheit. There is also generally an ideal length of time to steep your tea; leaving the tea bags in the cup for the duration of the drinking experience can lead to overly bitter flavors. Experiment to find your perfect steeping time. Lastly, the type of water you use can also provide different flavors. Consider tap water versus spring water or carbon filtered water. You may discover each to deliver a difference in flavor profiles.
