Fresh and cold water
The first step towards making a delicious tea is to arrange fresh and clean water. Some people do not give enough importance to this part of making tea as they feel that the germs would go away once the water is boiled. However, without fresh and clean water, making good tea would be impossible.
Heat the water
You just have to boil the water if you are making herbal or black tea. However, the water needs to be heated just to the boiling point while making green tea.
Now you need to put the water over loose tea in a teapot. Per cup (about six ounces), you should use one teaspoon of tea. You should add another spoon for the teapot. Once you have added tea in the hot water, you should close the lid on the teapot.
Brew the tea
Now you need to steep or brew the tea. While making green or black tea, it needs to be brewed about three to five minutes. Brew herbal tea for about four to six minutes and all kinds of wellness teas (ginko, mint, or chamomile) should be brewed for approximately six minutes.
Pour the tea into the mugs or cups
Your delicious tea is now ready and you can pour it into mugs or cups. If you have used loose tea, it will settle down at the bottom of the teapot.
