First, you need some good quality tea leaves of your favourite variety - it will reward you with a much better flavour than tea bags.
Using quality water is especially important. Use filtered water to improve the quality of your tea and avoid a lifeless cup of tea.
Either swill a little hot water in the pot (then tip the water out) or hold it gently in the steam from the kettle.
Leave to steep for 3 - 5 minutes. This draws the colour and flavours from the tea.
Next you’ll need a tea pot and tea strainer. Some modern teapots have a built-in strainer or infuser.
