For just a quick brew or a pleasurable cup of tea, use one teabag per cup of hot water: place the teabag in an empty cup; pour the hot water over it; cover; and let it steep from 3 to 5 minutes, according to your taste.
To get the most medicinal benefit, use this method of brewing, known as the decoction method. Good water is an essential part of brewing great tea; it is recommended that you use spring or filtered water. Combine desired amount of herbs with good water in a stainless steel or glass pot. Heat mixture until it is vigorously boiling, then cover and let simmer 10 to 20 minutes. When the tea has steeped long enough, strain off the herbs using a tea strainer or coffee filter and enjoy. Extra tea can be kept in a covered glass jar for a few days in the refrigerator. Be sure to relax! Some of the most enjoyable aspects of tea are the calmness and ritual that surround it.
