The benefit of this tea is that it can be used repeatedly - about 3 times. The secret to this is to use water that is about 180 F or 90 C. Place about 1-1 1/2 teaspoons in your cup. Let the tea steep for about 3 minutes and then begin enjoying a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the cup. Once the water level is low - add more water, and so on and so on - until the flavor of the tea is exhausted.
To make 1 liter/quart, place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea and steep for 5 minutes. Fill the quarter of the pot with cold water. Strain the leaves in a pitcher and add ice. You can add more cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste.
