How do you use a teapot without a strainer?

If your teapot does not have a strainer, pour the tea through an external strainer if possible. If you have nothing, pour it carefully into the cup, trying to keep loose leaves out of the cup as much as possible If they do get in, it's not the end of the world.

After the tea is poured, resist the temptation to begin drinking it right away. Drinking tea that is too hot can cause serious damage. Always make sure to let it cool to the ideal tea drinking temperature.
