2. Warm your teapot with a little hot water, discard, place your tea leaves in teapot (one level teaspoon per cup), allowing heat of the pot to release bouquet of the tea leaves.
3. Heat water to appropriate temperature. Steep 1 teaspoon (2.5 g/8 oz. cup) up to 5 minutes based on tea/tisane type.
*Vary time according to taste, & remember that steeping tea leave beyond 5 mins does not contribute to flavor, only bitterness.
