Basic guidelines for tea preparation ( by Valerie Reiss ):
Use a steel or glass kettle.
Fill with fresh, cold water.
Let it reach a rolling boil, unless you're making green tea,
in which case the water should be cooled for a minute or two
If you're making a whole pot, add a teabag for each person plus
"one for the pot."
Never reheat tea; it gets bitter.
Steep for about four minutes (a minute or two less for green tea).
Taste before you sweeten. You may find that the tea is good as is.
If not, try a tablespoon of honey.
