Have you ever prepared loose leaf tea? While the majority of tea consumed in the United States is prepared using a tea bag, brewing loose leaf tea is actually quite simple and can give you a more flavorful beverage. All you need is a tea kettle and a teapot with tea infuser. Here are the steps:
Step 1 Boil water in your tea kettle. Generally, one cup of water yields one serving of tea.
Step 2 While the water is boiling, place the tea infuser inside your teapot and then add the appropriate amount of loose leaf tea. It is recommended to use one teaspoon of tea leaves per cup of water.
Step 3 Once the water in the tea kettle reaches an appropriate temperature (which depends on the type of tea you are brewing), pour it over the tea infuser and into your teapot, allowing the water to circulate through the leaves.
Step 4 Steep the tea for three to five minutes, depending on the type of tea you are brewing.
Step 5 Once the tea is ready, dunk the infuser in the tea a few times to circulate the water, remove the infuser, and then serve the tea in your favorite mug.
