Brew the Perfect Pot of Tea

    * Bring filtered, cold water to a boil in a kettle. Using top quality water produces a better tasting cup of tea.
    * Pre-heat teapot by swirling a small amount of hot water around inside it.
    * Empty water. Add tea loose or in an infuser. Note: Use one teaspoon fine quality loose leaf tea per 6 oz cup of brewed tea.
    * NOTE: Infusers should only be partially filled to allow the tea leaves to expand and infuse the water with flavor.
    * Fill teapot with boiling water and cover with lid.
    * Allow tea to steep 1-5 minutes. Adjust time to suit your taste. Green Teas are generally steeped for 1-2 minutes. Flavored Blacks may steep as long as 5 minutes. Longer brewing time makes stronger tea.
    * Decant tea into your cup through a strainer, or remove infuser before pouring. The tea will continue to brew if leaves are left in the pot.
    * Add milk or sugar to suit your palate. Most green teas are best enjoyed without any additions, allowing the subtle and delicate flavors to come through.
