Step Two 
➣ Take possession of the pestle and the hard, flat surface. Use your pestle to crush your desired herbs into small pieces atop the surface.

➣ By now, your water should be at the desired temperature. Add your crushed herbs to the hot water.
Step Four
➣ Let the mixture sit for several minutes. Stir occasionally.
