Using a pot of kettle on a stovetop, bring your filtered water to a boil. The quality of water matters.
STEP 2: Choose your infuser
There are any number of devices that you can use to steep loose tea. A few are tea balls, sticks, mugs, and french presses. We offer a few of our favorite tea gadgets in our shop.
Fill your infuser with 1.5 teaspoons of loose tea to every cup of tea you wish to make.
STEP 3: Put tea into teapot and add hot water
If using a mug or french press, drop in your loose tea, replace the strainer, and add your hot water.
STEP 4: Cover and steep
Steep time is tea specific but usually it’s no more than 5 minutes.
If using a mug or french press, simply reset your lid.
STEP 5: Enjoy!
If using a mug or french press, pull out your favorite mug, pour, sit and sip!
