DIRECTIONS

  • Fill a saucepan with cold water and put it on the stove to boil.
  • As the water just begins to boil, pour a little of it into a teapot to warm it, swirling the water around and then discarding it.
  • For each cup of tea, place a spoonful of loose tea leaves into the empty warmed teapot.
  • Pour the boiling water into the teapot and let the tea steep 3 to 6 minutes, depending on the type of tea leaves.
  • Gently stir the tea before pouring it through a strainer into teacups.
  • Serve with milk and sugar, or lemon slices and honey, to your taste. Enjoy!
