Boil the water- Boil enough for your tea pot and then some. You will need extra for the next step
Hot the Pot. Once the water has heated up some, swirl some hot water around in the pot. Let it sit until the water boils, then pour out.
Add tea, pour water to the side of the tea about halfway up the pot.
Boil water again, fill the pot to the top with newly boiled water.
Set a timer and cover with a tea cosy. Black tea should steep for three to five minutes. After this time remove the tea bags.
Pour and enjoy!
