  • Boil water.
    If using an electric kettle with temperature setting, set it to 208°F. Heat a little more water than needed so that it can be used to warm up the teapot. Filtered water is best.
  • Warm up teapot.
    Pour some hot water into the teapot and swirl it around a bit. Discard the water.
  • Put Assam tea into teapot and add hot water.
  • Cover teapot and steep for 5 minutes.
  • Strain Assam tea leaves and pour hot tea into a teacup.


1. Put Assam tea and cool or room temperature water in a pitcher or glass container.
Filtered water will make a better tasting iced tea.
2. Cover pitcher and put in refrigerator for at least 12 hours.
3. Strain Assam tea leaves and pour tea into a cup.
Ice is optional since the tea is already cold.
