The tools to make tea the right way
Place dry loose tea leaves in little cup. Fill with boiling water, and use the tea made from that first pouring to rinse the teapot and cup and strainer. After discarding the first pouring, fill with water again, cover, and let steep for a few minutes.
Use the lid to keep the tea leaves in, and pour through the strainer into the teapot. Most chinese tea's can stand up to 10-12 pourings before becoming too weak.
