Tips for Tea
Do you find that your tea is often bitter? This may be due to either too high of temperatures, or too long a brewing time. The delicate Green tea leaves, for example, require lower temperature water and shorter brewing time for a more, well, delicate sensation. Here is a break down of the proper brewing methods for different teas. Rarely do we carry a thermometer to get the precise temperatures, so with the more delicate leaves like green and white, let the boiling water sit for about 2 minutes or add cool water before steeping.
