Fill both the teapot and the cup about halfway with hot water to preheat them. Tilt them a bit so that the water creeps up the side and then rotate them so the insides get wet all the way around. Then pour the water out.
Put 3 teaspoons of tea leaves into the teapot. If using a different vessel, use 3 teaspoons for every 230 ml of water. Fill the teapot with 90-95ºC water.
Place the lid on the teapot and let the tea steep for 1 minute. Pour the tea into the teacups and enjoy your tea! You can get 5-10 infusions out of most varieties. Increase the steeping time 30 seconds or so for each infusion. How many infusions you do depends entirely on your taste.
