Tips for brewing a perfect cup of tea.

There's nothing like a great cup of tea. For many consumers it's a way to start their day; for others it's an afternoon pick-me-up. Some find tea calming or soothing, and yet others believe in its healthy attributes. But tea is fickle--the wrong water temperature can ruin a cup of tea just a easily as under-steeping or over-steeping it. Below are tips from Teavana on how to brew the perfect cup of tea.
