Jasmine tea has a base of green tea leaves, and these shouldn’t be brewed with boiling water like black tea. The ideal temperature of the water is around 80°C/176°F. If you want to ensure the very finest taste, use filtered water for making your tea.
Although it depends on your personal taste, you want to brew your tea for between 1 – 3 minutes. Longer than this and it may become bitter. Green tea can be infused several times, and you can allow it steep for an extra 30 – 60 seconds each time.
