1. Use a teapot or really large mug.
  2. Pour hot water into the pot or mug to warm it up (this keeps the temp of the water higher when you brew the tea).
  3. If you are making tea for one person, put one teaspoon of tea in the pot or mug. If you are making tea for two people put in two teaspoons (but you had better have a really big mug).
  4. Boil the water and pour it into the pot or mug. At least 12 oz of water for one cup, 20 oz for two cups.
  5. If you like your tea weak, leave it sitting for 2 minutes then pour out the tea through a tea strainer into a teacup/mug.
  6. If you like your tea strong leave it sitting for 3 to 4 minutes and then pour out the tea through a tea strainer into a teacup/mug
  7. If you like your tea REALLY, REALLY STRONG stir the leaves after two minutes and pour it out through a tea strainer after 4 minutes into a teacup/mug
  8. Enjoy!
