Water temperature can make a big difference in the flavor and body of tea that you brew. Boiling water isn’t appropriate for everything. For your convenience, we’re carrying a digital thermometer that’s also waterproof (we use it in our tea kitchen where water gets everywhere) that can help you find the perfect water temperature for that Japanese Sencha or Putuo Shan Fo Cha.
You will find our recommendations for time and temperature on the back of every package of tea we sell. While certainly not rules, these numbers are great guidelines to get started in finding your own perfect infusion.
