How to Make Tea with Loose Leaves

Equipment Needed

  • Loose-Leaf Tea: Choose the type of tea you want to make.
  • Infuser: This can be a tea ball, an infuser insert, a teapot with an infuser, or an individual tea infuser.
  • Teakettle: Bring the water to a boil.
  • Tea Cup: Pick an appropriate tea cup.


  1. Prepare the infuser. Measure the desired amount of loose-leaf tea into the infuser. Most types of tea require about 1 teaspoon per cup.
  2. Bring the water to a boil. Depending on the type and quality of tea, water temperature may vary.
  3. Pour the boiling water over the loose-leaf tea in the infuser.
  4. Allow the tea to steep for 3-5 minutes. Depending on the type of tea, steeping time may vary.
  5. Remove the infuser and discard the tea leaves.
  6. Pour the steeped tea into a tea cup and enjoy!


  • When using loose-leaf tea, use freshly filtered water for the best flavor.
  • Always use fresh tea leaves. Stale leaves can make tea taste bitter.
  • If you want to store the loose-leaf tea, put it in an airtight container and store it in a cool, dry place.
