When using a tea bagStep 1: Heat up your hot water. (boiling or nearly so)

Step 2: Put the tea bag in a cup and pour hot water over it

Step 3: Brew for the amount of time directed on the box (1 to 5 minutes)

Step 4: Remove tea bag. Add milk, sugar, or lemon as desired.

When using loose leaf teaStep 1: Heat up your hot water (boiling or nearly so)

Step 2: Measure out the correct amount of tea and put in a tea ball or tea strainer

Step 3: Put the ball/strainer into a cup or teapot and pour hot water over it (let steep for awhile)

Step 4: Remove tea ball/strainer. Add milk, sugar, or lemon as desired to each cup.

For iced teaUse instructions from above steps but after Step 4 immediately pour the tea into a cup filled to the brim with ice. Add lemon and sugar to taste.

Further Details:

Different teas respond differently to brewing. Whole-leaf teas tend to infuse slower than broken-leaf teas. Many types of green teas often taste better when brewed with water slightly below boiling, whereas black teas often taste best with boiling water or water near boiling. However, brewing is a matter of personal taste, and you need to experiment to find how you like to brew tea.
