HOW TO BREW HERBAL TEA
Herbal teas are delicious hot or cold. Regardless of how you take your tea, follow the steps below and then add ice if desired. If brewing for iced tea, consider using a larger batch of tea as the ice will dilute the flavor.
1.Preheat a teapot by pouring boiling water into it, raising the temperature of the teapot to at least 180°.
2.Discard the water. In your teapot, or filter, add 1 teaspoon of loose tea for each cup of tea you're brewing.
3.Pour fresh boiling water over the tea or tea bag. This super-saturates the tea, allowing the perfect extraction of the flavor.
4.The water temperature should be 212°F (100°C). Let the tea steep for a full 5 minutes.
5.Pour the tea through a strainer into the cups.
