Time to Talk About Steeping Time!

Matthew Hammonds

So many friends have talked to me about, "how long to steep" different types of tea like it's a LAW. ย If it steeps one second too long, its RUINED, right?! ย 

Now, their are recommended steeping times for different types of teas and we give all of our customers the best recommendation for each type.

Steeping tea is somewhat like an equation โ€“ there are many variables that play into steeping your tea, like tea strength + flavor, or using hot/cold water, so find what works best for you!

BUT, don't be afraid to test different steeping times and water temperatures! ย You will experience different flavors in the same tea and you may be surprised by how much more you like a specific tea!

If you do decide to be a REBEL and change your steeping times and water temps, let me give you some advise (to use or not). ย 

In general, the cooler the water and shorter the steeping time, the lighter the flavor of your tea. ย And vice versa. ย 

So have fun experimenting and let us know what you discover!
