Brewing tea is an art. Start with a warm tea pot. Pour a bit of hot water in it to warm it up and then pour out. Fill the pot with the number of cups of boiling water you wish. Then place one tea bag for each cup. Let them sit for about five minutes, more or less according to the strength of tea that you want. If you leave it too long it will get bitter. Remove tea bags and pour into cups! You can also do it with a single cup. I like to cover the cup with a saucer while it steeps.

Pour very hotwater over the tea bag. Dunk it up and down 2-3 times. Cover the tea container. Depending on how strong you want the tea depends on how long you keep the tea bag in the cup that is covered aout 5-7 minutes or steeped. Remove the tea bag and add lemon,or sugar, or cream. Or lemon and sugar or cream and sugar. (But no, no, no--don't add lemon AND cream because the lemon juice will curdle your cream.)

How do i make a delicous tazo tea?

I would suggest purchasing Tazo tea bags from Starbucks or your local grocery store. You should boil some hot water and pour it into a mug over a tea bag. Cover the mug with something flat so that the tea has time to "steep". I would let it steep for 3-5 minutes before you enjoy your tea!

What does steep mean?

Steep has a couple of definitions. A hill is steep when it has a pronounced incline. Steep also means to soak in liquid to extract flavor or to soften. When we steep tea in a tea pot, we take the infusor, which is full of the tea leaves, and put it into the hot water. It will steep there for several minutes to permit the water to extract the flavor from the tea so we may drink it.
