Suggested Brewing Time and Temperature: This black tea brews best between 210 degrees for 2-3 minutes.
Presented in a 6 fl oz tin roughly 14-15 cups of tea. Presented in a 16 fl oz tin, roughly 40 cups of tea depending on preparation strength. Remember, don't try to make your tea stronger by steeping it longer, it'll get a bitter taste. Instead, increase the amount of tea you're using. Don't worry, you can always resteep the leaves. The general rule is a heaping teaspoon for each teacup you’re brewing. If you’re using a larger mug, increase the tea too.
