Making a cup of tea with a microwave is a simple and quick way to enjoy a cup of hot tea in no time. The following steps outline a basic process for microwaving tea.
Step 1: Get Everything You Need Together
Before you start microwaving tea, it’s important to make sure you have the right supplies. You will need the following:

- Hot water to fill the mug
- Any desired extras such as sugar, honey, milk, or lemon.
Step 2: Place Tea in Mug
If using tea bags, simply place one bag into the mug. If you’re using loose tea, place the desired amount of tea into the tea strainer or infuser and place it in the mug.
Step 3: Fill the Mug With Hot Water
Fill the mug with hot water. Make sure the water covers the tea bag or strainer.
