How to Use Loose Tea to Make Tea
Have you got a teapot in the back of your cupboard that hasn't been used in the past 20 years and you want to give it a use? Loose tea's the answer! It's as simple to make as tea with a teabag and tastes 100% better!
Boil the kettle with water in it.
When the water is boiled, pour the water into the teapot.Leave it in the teapot for about a minute and then pour the water down the sink. This is called steaming the pot, so the tea will stay hotter for longer. This is because the pot is already hot so the lower temperature of the pot doesn't cool down the tea.
Boil the kettle of water again.
While the kettle is boiling, put the tea leaves in the bottom of the cup.You can get the tea leaves from the supermarket. A teaspoon per person and another teaspoon for the kettle. If you're making tea for four people, then use 5 teaspoons of loose tea.
When the water is boiling, pour it into the teapot and mix it in with the tea leaves.
Leave the tea to brew for 3-5 minutes.Any less, you won't get the taste and any more, it'll be stewed.
Get out as many teacups as you need.
Stir the tea again at the end and then get the tea strainer over the top of the teacup and pour the tea through the strainer and into the teacup.
Add milk and sugar as you like and drink!

- Brew your tea quickly so it's still really hot. This keeps the flavor locked into your brew.
- Milk is fine for English Breakfast tea, but is not recommended for other teas, since it may take away the flavour. Unless you're into milk in your tea. Then what ever suits your taste.
- Make sure you have a good quality teapot, because if you have lower quality teapot, there's a chance your tea won't be as good.
