How To Make a Cup of Loose Leaf Tea

The basic steps involved in making a cup of loose leaf tea include –

  • Heat your water (temperature is different for different types of tea) I just let my kettle whistle on the stove and pour
  • Place your measured tea of choice (usually a teaspoon (+ 1/2) in an infuser or tea sack
  • Place the infuser/sack in a tea cup
  • Pour the hot water over the tea and let steep

Simple instructions for a simple cup of tea – there are more elaborate methods, but I do simple.
