  1. I just remember that when I took a few lessons on Sado (tea ceremony) in Japan, we pour hot water into the cup to warm it up, and discard hot water. I thought it was very classy. Once I started drinking coffee, drinking tea became a very rare occasion. I know herbal tea is far healthier than coffee, and I should get back to healthier choice… I have a tea pot and infusion. Right now Jasmine tea leaves I got from my mother. I will follow this ritual with my Jasmine tea tonight!

  2. Great post. I remember my great grandmother preparing loose tea. She had this sort of cloth bag and she used to stuff her herbs in it and put it in the pot to brew. I realize that loose tea is making a come back. You can get fresh herbs from your garden or from the local tea shop. You can even make your own concoction. And that’s the fun part. One of my friends makes her own chai tea from scratch with the black pepper and cardamons and everything.

    1. Chai tea is so delicious, you can find my favorite herbal chai tea blend right here . It is nice to use loose tea, cause you can make a personal blend with what you have at home. Thanks for visiting !

  3. I love tea! This is very helpful for people looking to put a little more effort into preparing their tea than just putting a tea bag in hot water (nothing wrong with this either). It’s just a lot more satisfying and comforting when you prepare it in a pot. And there are so many cute teapot options to choose from 🙂 Thanks for the great post!

  4. I have a morning ritual of making peppermint tea in a kettle and sipping on it during the early morning hours. I find it helps me wake up and focus better. I wonder if they sell loose peppermint leaves that can be used to prepare loose leaf tea in the way that you described. Also, I’m not sure if you have something like this already but it’d be nice to see different loose leaf tea recipes that can be made in this way.

    1. Hi Juan ! I plan to post loose tea blend recipes to make at home with a few basic herbs. Meanwhile, you can find beautiful blends here with my Top 5 favorites. Also, for loose peppermint leaves, you will find them here .
