Start by bringing 12oz of water to a boil and then take the pot off the flame. Add roughly 3 heaping teaspoons of aynar tea to the pot and return the pot back to the flame at a low setting. Let the tea steep for at least ten minutes for a light tea and up to an hour and a half if you want a really strong tea.
