Got loose leaf tea and don’t know how to prepare it? Follow these basics.
1. Boil water in a kettle…DO NOT PUT TEA LEAVES IN THE KETTLE.
2. Put your leaves in your infuser. Pour hot water from kettle onto leaves and steep in your cup/mug/teapot, etc.
3. Take leaves out and drink.
4. Add sugar, milk, or lemon if you like.
This is the absolute quick and basic prep guide for loose leaf teas. This is a starting point for those looking at a tin of loose leaf tea and having no idea what to do. There are special things to factor in…such as type of tea, water temperature and steep time that make a huge difference and can make or break a tea drinking experience. See that section of my site for those things.
