There are many approaches; it all depends on the type of the tea you will be preparing.


Steeping Single serving


  1. Boil Fresh or Best tasting water 1 tea cup/ 6 oz. up to a rolling boil or between 200° and 212°F. (avoid Distilled water, due to its flat taste)

  2. Place 1 tea bag in a cup.

  3. Pour the boiling water in the cup over the tea bag.

  4. Cover the cup and infuse to taste for 3- 5 minutes.

  5. Don’t sqeeze the bag. Steep the tea and remove the tea bag. This will maintain the best tasting tea.
