One of the easiest ways to do this would be bringing the water you are using to a full rolling boil and go from there. Always follow the specific heating and steeping directions given to you for the individual blend, but as a general rule of thumb, for herbal tea,Â you want to bring the water to a full rolling boil, or 212 degrees Fahrenheit, and immediately pour over the herbs and let it steep for the recommended time. For black tea and puerh tea, you generally want to aim for 210 degrees Fahrenheit. It is best not to pour straight boiling water over the black and puerh leaves in order to avoid burning them and getting a bitter cup, so I would recommend letting the water sit for 30 seconds before pouring over the leaves to let steep. For green and white tea you ideally should aim for 175 degrees Fahrenheit, so let the water sit for 2 minutes and then pour it over your leaves to steep.
