It also depends on how badly tannins are leaching out. I boil typically for 15-20 minutes and if a lot of tannins are present, will empty pot add fresh water and repeat until water remains fairly clear.
Be careful when boiling,if its a small piece only for a couple of minutes and it is better to get the water boiled first then add,i have mine sitting in a pale with some peroxide soaking.I couldn't boil the piece because the piece was to large
