How long should the tea remain in the water?
The flavour of the tea depends on how long it is brewed for.
How long tea should be brewed for depends on the type of tea. Generally: The longer it brews, the more intensive the taste. And the more tea leaves you use, the shorter the brewing time should be. Higher water temperature reduces the brewing time. The smaller and more broken the tea leaves, the stronger the tea will taste and therefore the brewing time should be shorter.
