You can use the already sleeping tea leaves - fill it with boiling water, cool and add the sugar, then pour into the jar. Sugar should not be too much - no more than two tablespoons per liter of liquid. If necessary it is better to add sugar in a cup of beverage.

Too many people do not strain the tea leaves - just add it. For the fungus is no harm in it, then you just will not be very easy to drink the beverage. However, no harm will occur only if all the sugar is completely dissolved - the grains of sugar in any case not be in contact with the surface of the fungus.
