How to Brew White Tea Most people agree that white tea should be brewed with water that is well below boiling and that higher temperatures will scald the tea. Generally, use water that is about 75 degrees Celsius.

How to Brew Green Tea It’s better to lower temperatures with green teas. If your green tea tastes bitter or overly grassy, try brewing it at a lower temperature. Most green teas are best when brewed well below boiling temp about 65 to 80 degrees Celsius. Steamed Japanese green teas tend to require lower temperatures than other green teas. Some scented or shaped green teas (like Jasmine Pearls) may be brewed at slightly higher temperatures. Yellow tea should be brewed much like green tea.

How to Brew Oolong Tea The best temperature for brewing oolong tea depends on how you’re preparing it. Gong fu brewing usually requires higher brew temperatures (as well as more leaves and very short brew times) compared to Western-style brewing. For Western-style brewing, oolong tea is generally best when brewed 88 to 93 degrees Celsius. If you’re looking at a pot of water in this temperature range, it will have bubbles that are about 5 mm in size and a moderate amount of steam. Jen Reviews lists ‘15 Health Benefits of Oolong Tea‘, ranging from improving mental performance to helping prevent cancer.

How to Brew Black Tea Some delicate black teas (like First Flush Darjeelings) require lower brewing temperatures of around 180 to 190 degree Fahrenheit (80 to 93 degrees Celsius). However, most black teas can be brewed 88 to 100 degrees Celsius. Whereas in the U.K. they tend to use 100 degrees Celsius (which is a full boil, as well as a small science joke).
