Place the tea leaves into your strainer or bag of choice. We recommend our Eighteen-Eight Strainer or (if you've got dignitaries around), opt for the Fourty-Three. You can also use an empty DIY tea-bag.
Most people use too many tea leaves to make their tea. Tea is efficient. You don’t need much of it to make the perfect cup. Generally, one teaspoon of tea is enough for one cup of water (8-12 oz.). After all, the TEAspoon is appropriately named because it makes one serving of tea. How about that?
You’ll be tempted (oh, you’ll be tempted) to dig in and give your cup another scoop or two. Don’t! Be strong! Hold fast! Trust the measurements given on the tea-in-question.
