You will need.
1 x Clean tea pot (it is important that the pot is clean so that stale tannins that are in the residue inside of a dirty pot will not make your tea bitter)
1 x Clean kettle (Ensure that there is no scaling inside the kettle if you live in an area with hard water since this will alter the taste, if you live in an area with hard water consider using spring water or distilled water for perfect tea)
1 x stove, burner or hotplate
1 x Thermometer
1 x Teaspoon
1 x Tea strainer
1 Teaspoon of tea leaves per cup to be served
1 Clean tea cup per serving
White sugar to taste
Milk to taste
Lemon (optional, instead of milk)
1: Add sufficient water to fill the teapot and add the same number of cups of water as there are to be cups of tea served and heat the water to the correct temperature as shown in figure 1 over the stove.
2: Warm the tea pot to the same temperature by filling it with water and discarding it, this will ensure the water is not cooled by the teapot and the tea will steep at the correct temperature.
3: Add the tea to the teapot and then add the water and allow to steep of the period indicated in the chart below. Do not exceed this time since the tea will become bitter.
4: Strain the tea into a cup and then add milk and then sugar to taste, a squeeze of lemon may be added instead of milk if you prefer.
5: Serve immediately
6: Additional infusions can be made from the same tea leaves to the limit indicated in the chart below. This should be done immediately since if the leaves go cold they may become bitter or contaminated.
