1 teaspoon loose green tea leaves (or 1 tea bag)
1 cup water
½ teaspoon raw honey or raw agave nectar (optional)
Add tea leaves to a tea ball or strainer and place in a large ceramic cup. Bring water to a boil (be careful not to allow the water to come to a rolling boil). Pour hot water over tea ball and let steep 3 to 4 minutes. Remove tea ball and serve. If desired, add honey or agave nectar to tea.
