I know some people may combine these steps to save time and / or water, but typically, I, and most people I know, preheat the teaware first, then rinse.

Having lived here for a long time I have become somewhat acculturated, therefore I have a hard time rinsing the leaves. My tendency is to throw that into my first cup and drink it.
