Grab a cup of your favorite flavor hot tea at your local Dunkin’, or you can pick up a box of 15 individually wrapped tea sachets to brew yourself at home. For the tea novices out there, here are six easy steps for brewing the perfect cup of tea at home: 

  1. Add freshly drawn, cold water to a tea kettle. Purified or spring water works best to avoid any pollutants which might impact the tea’s taste.
  2. Bring the water to a gentle boil and then remove from the heat. Allowing the water to boil too long can leave the tea tasting flat.
  3. Pour hot water into teacups to warm them and then pour it out – this helps ensure the hot tea is a uniform temperature.
  4. Add the Dunkin’ Donuts tea sachet to the teacup, and then pour hot water over the tea.
  5. Allow the tea to steep. How long depends on your personal preference for how strong or weak you like your tea, but generally 3-5 minutes is a good benchmark.
  6. Remove the tea sachet, add in milk, sugar or lemon if desired, and enjoy!
