Making A Perfect Pot Of Tea

First, fill your kettle with fresh, cold water. Put the kettle on the stove and just before it comes to a boil, pour a generous dash of hot water into your teapot. Swirl the water around to warm the pot. (This step ensures that the water stays at boiling point when it hits the tea, promoting the tea leaves to open properly).
Spoon one heaping teaspoon of tea leaves for each person and one for the pot, straight into the warmed teapot. Now, pour the boiling water from your kettle over the tea in the teapot. Be careful not to "over boil" your water, as this will result in a muddy brew of tea.
Let the tea sit for 3-6 minutes.
Stir the tea well and pour into your best teacups. Be sure to use a strainer to catch the leaves. If you take cream or milk with your tea, you should add them to the cup, cold and fresh, before pouring the tea.
