Brewing time also varies a lot depending on what tea you're brewing and the quality of the leaves.

As an example, the "ordinary" lapsang souchong from Teboden ("the tea hut", used to be my preferred tea vendor while at uni) should be allowed to steep for roughly 3m45s, less than that and you get a weak, unpleasant tea and any longer it turns bitter and unpleasant.

Whereas the "superior" version of essentially the same tea is acceptable with a steeping time anywhere from 4 to 8 minutes and needs to be left to infuse for at least 25 minutes before becoming unpleasantly bitter.

Ideally, either the tea packaging or the tea vendor's list of teas should indicate a brewing time that can serve as an initial guide for experimentation.
