Tea on Shabbat


The laws of Shabbat permit boiling solids which were already boiled before Shabbat.

Tea leaves are dried over a fire, but this process is qualitatively different from a boiling process in the eyes of Jewish law. Therefore, one may not consider tea leaves "pre-boiled", and one may not boil them over a flame on Shabbat.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 2:85)

Have a great day,
