How do I know the water temperature is right?

While temperature is easy to determine if you have a thermometer, how can you tell without one? The easiest trick is the boil-and-wait method below. Keep in mind these are just guidelines and not a guarantee! Hot water (75⁰C - 80⁰C): Let the boiled water sit for about 5 minutes before use. Near-boiling (90⁰C - 95⁰C): While brewing, use the water as soon as it reaches its brewing temperature.

Can tea be reheated?

Tea should not be reheated. It spoils the original level of VFC (volatile flavor components) antioxidants and essential oils. In case the duration has been within 15 minutes of preparation, it can be consumed but its taste and flavor would be less and unappealing. Once tea is added with sugar or milk and left for more than half an hour, it would lead to bacterial degeneration. If your tea has been sitting for several hours, it is better just to pour it out and prepare a fresh batch, especially if this is green tea or white tea.
