How to Brew Black Looseleaf Tea

Black Looseleaf Tea with Lemon Zest Flavored Finishing Sugar - CookingWithKimberly.comThis morning, I want to show you exactly how to brew black loose leaf teas in a cup or teapot.

In the video below, I used a black looseleaf tea that’s Cranberry flavored, with actual dried cranberries mixed in.

This tea is from Lauriam Tea House in Bowmanville, Ontario, and was lovingly given to me by one of my sisters, as she knows I really love tea.

Also, today I’m using a lemon zest flavored finishing sugar I showed you all how to make yesterday to sweeten my tea.

Don’t be scared in your kitchen to try something new. Don’t worry, I’ll make sure you’re a champion in your kitchen!
