It’s been a long day at work, and your body needs some relaxation. But what if you could relax without having to leave home? What if you could just pop into the kitchen and brew yourself a cup of tea? Well, that’s exactly what we’re going to show you how to do today. We’ll start off by making our own loose leaf tea from scratch. Then we’ll make a delicious dessert using the leftover tea leaves. Finally, we’ll end this video with a quick lesson on brewing tea properly. So let’s get started!
Step 1: Ingredients
We need to gather together a few ingredients before we can begin. First, we’ll need to find ourselves some fresh green tea leaves. You can use any variety of tea that you like, but we prefer to use organic, loose leaf teas. Next, we’ll need to pick out a pot to boil our water in. You don’t have to spend a lot of money on this, but we recommend choosing something that has a lid. This way, you won’t have to worry about spills. And lastly, we’ll need to grab a strainer to strain our tea leaves once they’ve boiled.
Step 2: Boiling Water
To make our tea, we first need to heat up some water in our pot. To do this, we’ll add some boiling water to our pot. Make sure that the water covers the bottom of the pot completely. If not, then add some hot tap water until the pot is full. Once the water is heated, turn down the heat to low and wait for the water to come to a simmer.
