new teapot

prescitt | Jan 5, 201502:34 PM     14

I just received a gift of a beautiful little teapot & some loose tea. On the bag containing the tea I am told to use 206 degree water to brew the "perfect" cup of tea. Well, I live at an altitude of 6200 feet, and water boils at 200 degrees. I can't use hot enough water, so should I use MORE tea, or allow it to steep a little longer? Or both?
