What is important to tea?

Obviously water and tea but more precise is the temperature of the water and the time the tea leafs are brewed for. If the temperature of the water is too high the leafs cook in the water and the tea becomes bitter. If the temperature is to low then the leafs don't unfurl properly giving weak tea. The period of time you leave the tea in the water for also has an effect on the tea, to long and the tea becomes bitter, to short and the tea is weak.
There are four main tea leafs that I want to look at white, green, oolong and black and each come with a temperature range and brew time.
