Perfect water temperature for different teas

Not every tea is made equal! That’s why it’s important that you brew them as such. There’s a different method for every type of tea – from Black Tea to Rooibos. So, make sure you’re getting the most out of your cuppa with these brewing tips from the tea masters.

  • How to brew Black Tea

Experience the true taste of your favourite tea by using the right water temperature!

Most black teas (like our famous Tetley blend) can be brewed between 88 to 100 degrees Celsius. When warming the water to this temperature, there will be small bubbles (between 4 mm and 8 mm) present, and a moderate to a large amount of steam to go with them.

However, if you’d like to enjoy your Black Tea in true English fashion, brew your tea at boiling point.

 

  • How to brew Rooibos Tea

Rooibos is best enjoyed at very high temperatures!

Rooibos Tea, much like Black Tea, is best brewed at higher temperatures – around 100 degrees Celsius. Brewing your Rooibos at boiling temperature is highly recommended to ensure 
that you get all of the taste and benefits out of your cuppa – especially if it’s our famous Laager Rooibos Tea. This means, when you’re boiling your water, you will be able to see large bubbles and a moderate amount of steam.

Now that you know the secret to brewing the perfect cup of tea, tell us, which is your favourite?
