NOTE: This article was previously posted in 2016 and revised on February 01, 2018. Some content in this article may allude to events on or surrounding the date of the initial post. In one of my Long Live Paper subscriptions I found a simple article outlining exactly how to steep different types of tea as this never fails to be a popular topic amongst new tea sippers. This article made me think of a similar post that I created in 2016: Steep Right or Die | Steep Times & Temps.
Are you steeping your tea wrong? I am sure you've asked yourself this question as you pour water heated to exactly 175°F over your loose leaf tea...or was it supposed to be 185°F? No worries! I really don't intend to murder you like a victim in one of Alfred Hitchcock's books. I have instead created a comprehensive list of tea steeping times and temperatures. Now you can sip happily ever after...the right way... you know, without dying and all... Be sure to also subscribe to
