INGREDIENTS
 

INSTRUCTIONS
 

  • Boil water.
    If using an electric kettle with temperature setting, set it to 175°F. Heat a little more water than needed so that it can be used to warm up the teapot. If boiling water on the stovetop, let it come to a simmer, then turn off heat.
    Use filtered water for brewing. Water is the only other ingredient in tea, so better water equals better tea.
  • Warm up teapot.
    Pour some hot water into the teapot and swirl it around a bit. Discard the water.
  • Put White Peony tea into teapot and add hot water.
  • Cover teapot and steep for 3 minutes.
  • Strain tea leaves and pour hot tea into a teacup.
