The Perfect Pot of Tea Recipe

By Tammy Algood Published: May 1, 2016

  • Yield: 2 Servings



  1. Bring a kettle of freshly drawn cold water to a boil over high heat. When the water comes to a boil, pour a small amount into a teapot and replace the lid. Allow the teapot to warm for up to 1 minute. Drain the pot and add the loose tea or place the tea in a tea ball and add to the pot. Add the boiling water and allow to brew 3-4 minutes. If using loose tea, pour through a strainer into tea cups. Serve hot tea with milk, sugar cubes and fresh lemon slices. Note: If you prefer to use tea bags, use round ones with no strings or tags attached. Use 1 regular tea bag per cup.
