Positively loved this light refreshing tea. I used leaf tea and as I have an infuser style of pot I heated the pot with hot water, poured it out and then put the tea leaves in the infuser basket and poured over the boiling water and let it steep before drinking. Thank you Sommer Clary, made for Chinese Vietnamese New Year Tag game.
