Although, rumor has it using one will take away the powder’s active ingredients. Don’t stress yourself much over this as it entirely depends on your heat tolerance.
If you are using leaves, filter the tea through a strainer to reserve the liquid. Squeeze the leaves further to make the most out of them.

Don’t throw out those leaves yet; they can be used for another liter of water before discarding. Once done, combine both sets of liquid, and boil it once again until it is reduced to about 100 ml.
4. Getting down to the right amount
Extracting may sound like a lot of work, but the idea behind it is to boil the tea to an amount that should be easy to swallow, given its unpleasant taste.

If you’re not a fan of chocolate, any basic sweetener works, too.
