The first thing you need to do is bring the water to an almost boil. The ideal boiling temperature should be about 170 degrees. Of course, boiling temperatures depend on the type of tea. If the tea you are using is black, bring the filtered water to a full boil. Until the water boils, place one blooming tea ball into the medium to large glass teapot. Or, you can also use a glass pitcher.

When the water boils, pour it into the teapot containing the blooming tea ball.

Finally, watch the blooming tea ball unravel into a beautiful bloom. It might take 3 to 5 minutes to unravel.

After the tea ball blossoms, you should steep the tea for about 10-15 minutes. Next, pour the liquid into your favorite cup and you are ready to go. The only thing left is to add optional add-ins. It could be anything from sliced lemons, sweeteners, fresh mint leaves, honey or anything else you wish.
