Tea is one of the quintessential Steampunk beverages. Any meeting between Steampunks is made infinitely better when they are brought together over well brewed cuppas. Steeping tea properly is an art which many people (myself included) usually abandon in favor of over-steeped but very strong tea.
But should you wish to get the very best out of each cup of tea, there’s a certain amount of time and a particular temperature you should permit your tea to steep before removing the tea bag or leaves.
A simple but very helpful website called Steep.It helps you brew the perfect cup each time by showing you the correct time and temperature by which to create your favorite teas. Readers from outside the US will be glad to see the temperatures for their tea listed in Celsius alongside Fahrenheit, and there’s a considerable list of different types of tea, so you’re sure to get the perfect combination of time and heat for a well steeped cup.
