We don’t recommend simply steeping GrunTea in a teapot with boiled water – as it does not hold sustained heat sufficiently to create the Grunt Factor! You’ll get an utterly beige cuppa if you do this. Do so at your own taste buds peril! Better to prepare in a saucepan if you cannot put your teapot on the stove and maintain a boil for 30 seconds. Please see our Brewing GrunTea page for all the details on brewing the best cuppa!
