I usually take about 10 or 11 Tetley British blend tea-bags and toss them into my Black & Decker coffee maker. I get about a gallon of tea, put it in the fridge and the next day I have nice iced tea.

It's rare that I have hot black tea.... More often than not it's when I go out for Chinese or Sushi, sometimes they have green tea.

I just drink water like that, no boiling, no tea bags/balls/pyramids, no need for sugar or even milk. Occasionally when I'm not feeling that well I may have a peppermint/ginger infusion or a nettle one or a camomile one which I'll drink either hot or cold and I don't bother with sugar.

I put some water in the electric kettle and a teabag in the cup. Wait until the water is hot, but preferably not boiling, and then pour it into the cup. Wait a few minutes, then take out the teabag and stir in a spoonful of honey.

Tea without honey is basically just water.

I put the water, tea bags (chamomile) and cinnamon sticks in a sauce pot and let it simmer for a while and use a ladle to pour the tea in a cup and add 3-4 tsp of sugar and mix and enjoy c:

recently I started drinking sencha at home. the preparation is a little different to the teas I usually drink!

- fill teapot with freshly boiled water
- add cold water to cool it down to around 70C (160F?)
- add a few spoonfuls of leaves depending on how big your pot is. I think the advice is 1 tbsp per cup of water.
- brew for 30secs to 1 minute. I use a mesh strainer so I can remove the leaves easily.
- enjoy! (don't forget to warm the teacups!)

the short brewing time and cool temp will draw out the flavour without making the tea too astringent. overbrewed sencha is no good. also, you can reuse the leaves to make a second pot in the same way! this is good because I can easily drink a whole pot of sencha by myself. don't try and reuse the leaves more than once tho.

Do you make gun powder tea the traditional way?


Sadly I actually never did that yet. Does it taste a a ton better that way? I'm quite curious and willing to try it the traditional way sometime!

No I usually just put the tea leaves/balls (Lol) in a teapot filter and then add water that cooled off 5 min after boiling to the pot and have it steep for 2 minutes. So it's pretty much the 'lazy' way. At least I make sure to not use boiling water .. as that would be quite some bitter-disgusting tea indeed XD


It's a three part drink so it's different with each cup.

When I make tea I always follow the same procedure.

1. Boil Kettle and Grab the biggest mug in my house
2. Put tea bag and some sugar into the mug
3. Pour the boiled water into the mug and stir
4. Pour the milk into the mug and stir
5. Remove the teabag and bin it
6. Drink tea

I brew my tea by pooring boiling water in my specially made tea mug (with a filter for tea leaves).
Now depending on the type of tea I let it sit for between 4 to 7 minutes.

I usually dont use tea bags but instead loose leafs that I buy at a local tea store, and I rarely add anything to the tea.

I usually just throw a tea bag in my huge mug, fill with hot water and drink :)

I cycle between the teas I drink. For a while I liked green, then oolong, Earl Grey for a while and now I'm on Chai. I found some pods really cheap for the Keurig that are really good.

Yea, like the description says, how do you brew your tea?

I usually put a cup of water in the microwave and then proceed to put down the tea bag (put not intended)... And then I add a fine bit if milk in it.


Same ._.

I microwave it, then add 3 tablespoons of sugar. Not very special there.
