HOW TO BREW TEA WITH A TEAPOT & INFUSER 


IN THIS GUIDE WE'LL GO OVER HOW TO BREW TEA WITH A TEAPOT & INFUSER

This method is ideal for brewing a full pot of tea (multiple cups) rather than a single cup, as there must be enough water in the teapot to submerge the leaves sitting in the infuser. Enjoy cup after cup with this simple and easy to clean option.


WHAT YOU'LL NEED
◦ TEAPOT WITH INFUSER
◦ TEA LEAVES
◦TEASPOON OR SCOOP
◦ POT OR KETTLE TO BOIL WATER
◦ FRESH WATER (PREFERABLY FILTERED)
◦ YOUR FAVORITE TEA CUP
STEP 1
ADD THE TEA LEAVES
Measure 1 rounded teaspoon (~2 grams) of tea leaves per 1 cup (8 ounces) of water to equal 1 cup of tea. Pour the leaves into the infuser.
STEP 2
ADD THE WATER
 Add boiling or hot water to the teapot. Follow instructions on your tea packaging for recommended water temperature. (Find general water temps here.)
STEP 3
STEEP THE TEA
Place the lid on the teapot. Allow the leaves to expand as you steep for the recommended time. Follow instructions on your tea packaging. (Find general steep times here.)
STEP 4
POUR THE TEA
Pour the tea into your cup. The leaves will remain in the infuser, leaving you with a perfectly strained cup of tea.
STEP 5
ENJOY YOUR TEA
Enjoy your perfectly steeped cup of tea!
PRO TIP
Remove the infuser so the leaves are not left to over-steep in the water. Reuse the tea leaves for multiple re-steeps and discover new and exciting flavors in a 2nd or 3rd cup and beyond! Simply add water again (Step 2) and increase your steep time by 30 seconds-1 minute for each subsequent infusion.
