How long do you leave a teabag in water?!

Question: How long do you leave a teabag in water?
Pretty much in the question. How long should you leave a teabag in water to make sure all of it is dissolved in the water? It's green tea if that matters.


I have three boxes of various green teas.
One box says 1 to 1.5 minutes. Another says 3-5 minutes. I would go with at least 1.5 -2 minutes.

first of all, make sure the water is not boiling hot. green tea needs a bit cooler water. probably around 180-190 F. i'd steep green tea for 2 or 3 minutes. Then adjust accordingly.

For about hour or less it is best beyoond it changes the taste
