okay, so I'm new to this whole RRL tea thing, and actually new to tea making in general so this is embarassing..
so i got the tea bag kind and was wondering how i make it.
I'm not kidding unfortunately lol.
i made a few cups today and i think maybe i did it wrong because it tasted really watered down.
i used one tea bag for my first 2 cups (and it was watery) and then used 2 tea bags for my third mug full and it wasn't as watered down but I'm not sure if I'm doing it correctly.
how long do i leave the tea bags in there before i drink it?
how many (2g) tea bags should i be drinking per day?
can i reuse a tea bag? like just refill the cup with hot water?
pretty much any advice you can give me would be great.
oh gosh i sound so dumb.
I take a little pot and fill it with about 3 cups of water. I take two tea bags and pull off the paper tags, then throw the tea bags in the water. I bring it up to boiling and let it boil for a couple minutes. I then turn off the oven and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. I usually do this in the evening and I drink one cup hot and then I let the rest steep over night so its really strong and drink that the next day. Don't re-use tea bags. You should drink at least 3 cups a day, I believe. Kathleen told me a quart a day and 3 cups is close to a quart.
Are you getting your tea bags from Natures Nook? I know its kinda pricey there, I ordered a pound of loose leaf and I have more than I need for me if you want some I can give it to you. ;0)
