TEA (RUSSIAN STYLE)
Use a small earthenware tea-pot, thoroughly clean. Put in two teaspoons
of tea leaves, pour over it boiling water to one-fourth of the pot, and
let it stand three minutes. Then fill the pot entirely with boiling
water and let it stand five minutes. In serving dilute with warm water
to suit taste, or serve cold, but always without milk. A thin slice of
lemon or a few drops of lemon juice is allowed for each cup. Preserved
strawberries, cherries or raspberries are considered an improvement.
