Can you over-brew fruit herbals?

OH yea! It gets bitter and has a strong aftertaste. The peppermint and some of the others you can get away with a lot more- but the fruit ones I've always had to watch.

Brew time

I'm a bit confused I admit...my sample tin from Adagio said 7 minutes at 212F...the 4 oz I ordered after I found I LOVED the tea says 7 min at 180F...Which is it? :cry:

I accidentally forgot an IngenuiTEA full of strawberry chamomile for almost half an hour! Fortunately it still tasted great LOL

Unfortunately, in our crazy rush to get the new tins and labels designed before the holidays, we goofed on the herbal labels. The label should say 212 degrees, but instead says 180. Don't worry, the people responsible have been sacked.

EDIT: We at Adagio HR apologize for the term 'crazy'. Those that wrote the original message have been sacked.
