How to Make a Good Cup of Tea
Fill the kettle with cool, fresh water. If you have a filter use water from there.
Turn the kettle on to boil the water.
Place a tea-bag (or loose tea in a filter) in each cup or two in a teapot
Pour the boiling water from the kettle into the cups or teapot.
Wait for 2-3 minutes or maybe even 4-6 for the tea to brew,depending on the kind of tea you are using. After 3 minutes most teas become too tannic. Try and keep it hot for this time by keeping the lid on or using a little plate on top of a cup.
Now pour the tea from the tea pot into a cup (using a strainer to filter out tea-leaves). If you brewed your tea in a cup, simply drink and enjoy!
If desired, add a sweetener and/or flavoring to the cup or teapot. You can use sugar, honey, and lemon, among many other variations.
