    Steeping Notes

    Consider also cold steeping or ice steeping (see Steeping Techniques). The main thing to note is that lower water temperatures create a sweeter flavor profile while hotter temperatures create a more bitter, astringent profile. More water or less tea will reduce the strength of the tea.

    • 1st steeping - Tea: 1 tea bag. Time: 45-60 seconds. Water: 70C/160F, 200 ml.
    • 2nd steeping - Time: 10-20 seconds.Water: 80-90C/180-195F, 200 ml (about 1 cup).
    • 3rd steeping - Increase time to 30-60 seconds or to desired strength.
