Tea Up

Just found another great tea site for you to explore. Its called Good4youtea.  So thought I would post a few do's and don'ts about tea.
Do use earthenware,china or clear pyrex teapots.
Do drink tea immediately after brewing for full flavor and bouquet.
Do use half again as much tea in preparing ice tea as you would in preparing hot tea.
Don't judge strength of brew by the color.
Don't shorten the brewing time. If brew is too strong dilute with hot water, to taste.
Don't ever boil tea.
Don't use cream. If you must color it use milk
Don't let hot brewed tea cool prior to icing. Ice it immediately, this will minimize clouding.
