How to prepare loose leaf tea

Most teas only require a short period of time to steep. One to three minutes will yield a nice flavor. Longer than that and you may end up with a bitter flavor. Herbal teas, however, can be steeped longer and I usually steep them for at least five minutes.

Ingredients needed

  • 12 oz. hot filtered water
  • 1 tablespoon loose leaf tea 
  • cup/mug
  • straining device - Try our mesh tea ball

Directions

Place loose leaf tea in your tea strainer of choice, then put it in your favorite mug. Boil water in your tea kettle (remove right before it boils for green and white tea), then remove from heat. Pour over the tea and let steep for 1-3 minutes.

Serve plain or add a little natural sweetener like raw honey and/or a touch of cream.
