Assuming the water is clean is like assuming
there are no secuity attackers. That's obviously
untenable in this day and age.

Best-practice hygiene is best-practice security.

Always boil the water first. This is in line
with best security practice, which attempts
to boil the ocean.

Only if the source of water is not clean.

Even if the water is first boiled, it can be cooled (or allowed to
cool) to the desired temperature for the specific tea being steeped
(e.g., a selected value most often between 140F and 208F (60C to 98C).
