STEP BY STEP
What you will need:
- Boiling water
- Tea cups
What you need to do:
- Prepare a four-cup teapot by adding about 1/3 cup boiling water and swirl it gently to warm the pot; then throw it away.
- Immediately add the indicated amount of the herb to the pot and pour hot (not boiling this time) water on it. Let it brew for at least three minutes and up to six. Some herbs might require longer steeping time.
- If you have dry leaves, chop or crumple them and use the recipe’s indicated amount instead of the fresh leaves.
