  1. I really don’t see the problem. I over steep my tea all the time and its wonderful. If anybody gives you that sort of negativity about over steeping you tea, then you should not have them in your life. 😉 Don’t worry about.

  2. How long is too long? I know the instructions say 2 minutes for black tea or 3 minutes for herbal…but I don’t time it! I guesstimate? And it tastes great. As long as your tastebuds are happy – that’s all that matters!

  3. Better that than over pouring it. I always end up with either half my tea over me or my friend/guest. My company doesn’t tend to be as accepting of it as I am.

    I have a confession too – I hate cold tea, and given that I’m usually running here there and everywhere at home, tea anybody makes me generally gets forgotten until it’s cold – then I have to re-make it without them knowing :/

  5. Over-steep because you get busy, distracted, or just like over-steeped tea? I also over-steep because I forget to remove the tea bag, my tea is usually coolish when I finally get to it too, thank goodness for microwave!

  6. What is the nationally recommended level of steepage. I’m concerned I might be an over-steeper too. Do you think there are others like us out there too?

    Don’t let the haters get you down! Apart from really delicate infusions like jasmine or white leaf tea, there is no such as oversteeping. There is over-milking and over-sugaring (surely the domain of hedonistic plebs), but steeping for a long time is necessary to bring oit all the super yummy flavour!
