☞ Always use a non-reactive kettle such as glass, stainless steel, enamel or cast iron (never aluminum!)
☞ Best not to use infusers or tea bags. Loose pieces move more freely and make better contact with water, allowing for richer extraction of goodness and flavor.

Heat to a full, rolling boil.
Turn heat down, and simmer for 15 minutes.
