Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 heaping tablespoon per 16 oz
Steep Time: 2-3 minutes
Add tea leaves to a teapot, fill-your-own tea bag or infuser basket.
Use 1 to 3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon) of leaves per cup (8 oz) of water. Adjust to taste.
Bring fresh, cold water to a rolling boil, allow it to cool slightly, then pour water over tea leaves and cover.
Infuse (steep) leaves 2-5 minutes; 3½ minutes is a good average that works well for most tea types. Do not oversteep or tea may become bitter. If you prefer strong tea, simply use more leaves.
Remove bag or infuser from water or strain leaves. Enjoy!
