For Rachel, Pam, Janet, and anyone else who is curious about brewing loose tea.

1) I put 3 teaspoons of loose tea (I like a good, strong flavored tea) into a pint size glass jar. You can use less or more, depending on your tastes. A pint will fill one of my nice size mugs. Today I'm making a delightful cup of the Creamy Pumpkin Pie Tea.

6) I pour the jar of steeped tea (loose tea and all) into the sieve. Loose tea leaves stay in the sieve. Beautiful herbal tea is perfectly strained into the Pyrex cup.
And of course, y'all know where to find my favorite blends:
