Need help with brewing

by yamiyugi1764 » Apr 10th 08 3:13 am

Hello everyone,

I just recently decided to try drinking some tea, and was recommended chamomile by a friend, so i bought some from adagio. My only problem is, I have no idea how to brew loose leaf tea. I ordered the IngenuiTEA but it hasnt arrived yet. Even when it does I'm still clueless on this. If at all possible, I'd like to try some tonight, but I don't know if I need anything special to do it. Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Do you have a strainer? If so you can just put the leaves in one cup with the hot water, then pour out through the strainer into a second cup.

Good luck!

I downloaded the free tea timer, and have decided to just wait for the IngenuiTea to get here, which should be tommorow. As much as I'd love to try it, I'm going to have to wait. I'm hoping I'll be able to figure it out from there.

Thanks for the advice Victoria, and sorry Chip, I should've read the forum rules before posting. I'll try to watch myself from now on.
