Steeping involves allowing dry ingredients, such as coffee, tea, or spices, to soak in a liquid until the liquid takes on the flavoring of the dry ingredient.
It involves soaking the ingredient in liquid until saturated with it.

The most important variables to take into account in steeping excellent tea are the size of the leaf and the temperature of the water.
The larger the leaf, the longer you must steep it; the smaller the leaf, the more surface it exposes to the water and the more quickly proper infusion occurs.
Steeping times vary depending on the size of the tea leaves used. On an average, the steeping time is between 3 – 5 minutes
