Using a Tea pot

What You Need

  • Tea pot
  • Tea Leaves
  • Water
  • Kettle


  1. Fill the Kettle: Fill the kettle with water. Make sure that there is enough water in the kettle to fill the tea pot.
  2. Heat the Water: Heat the kettle over the stove. Boil the water until it is steaming but not boiling.
  3. Add Tea Leaves: Place a few tea leaves in your tea pot. Do not add too many leaves as this may over-steep the tea. The amount of leaves you add will depend on the size of your tea pot.
  4. Pour the Water: Carefully pour the hot water into the tea pot.
  5. Let the Tea Steep: Place a lid on the tea pot and allow the tea to steep for 3-5 minutes, depending on the type of tea you are making.
  6. Pour and Enjoy: When the tea has finished steeping, carefully pour it into cups or a teapot and enjoy!


  • Do not over-steep the tea leaves as this may make the tea too bitter.
  • Always use fresh, filtered water.
  • If the tea is too strong, add some more hot water.
  • If you are making iced tea, allow the tea to cool before pouring over ice.
