Instructions

Heat the water: Place the water in a tea kettle and heat it just to a rolling boil, or between 200° and 212°F.

Pre-warm the teapot or cup (optional): Pour a small amount of boiling water into the pot or cup. When the pot or cup is warm, pour out the water.

Measure the tea leaves: Using a scale, measure 2 to 3 grams of tea leaves. Alternatively, measure 1 rounded teaspoon of tea leaves.

Place the leaves in the teapot or cup: Place the tea leaves in the pot or cup, either directly or in an infuser.

Pour the water: Pour the water over the tea leaves.

Cover the teapot or cup: Place the lid on the teapot or, if using a cup, cover it with a lid or a small saucer.

Keep it cozy (optional): Cover the teapot or cup with a tea cozy or a thick towel to retain heat.

Steep the tea: Set a timer for 3 to 5 minutes. You may wish to taste the tea at 3 minutes and then every 30 seconds until it is to your liking.

Stop the infusion: As soon as the tea is ready, remove the leaves by lifting out the infuser or pouring the tea through a strainer.

Add milk, lemon, or sweetener (optional: If using milk, heat it gradually by adding the milk to the cup first, then pouring in the tea. Avoid combining milk and lemon, or the milk may curdle.
