  • Heat contained by rinsing out with boiling water.
  • Put tea in pot. Pour 4 c of freshly boiling water over the tea leaves.
  • Steep for 6 minutes.
  • Strain and refridgerate.
  • To use, put 1/2 to 3/4 cup of tea essence in an 8 cup teapot and fill the pot with fresh boiling water. Vary the anount of essence to get desired strength.
  • If using tea bags, rip open the bags and use the contents. Squeezing 16 tea bags into a 4 cup volume does not give enough circulation space to properly steep the tea. As tea bag contents are usually pretty fine, you should strain this through a coffee filter.
