Cooking Tea Leaves on Shabbat

Cooking Tea Leaves on Shabbat
Day: Friday
Date: June 20, 2014
Parshat: Korach
Yalkut Yosef: 318

As we have learned (see DSH from June 16, 2014) pouring food from a kli rishon that is above the temperature of yad soledet bo is called iruy kli rishon and cooks on Shabbat. Therefore, one who wishes to make tea on Shabbat with uncooked tea leaves may not pour hot water from a kli rishon onto the leaves. It goes without saying that he may not cook them in a kli rishon on Shabbat either. If before Shabbat hot water from a kli rishon was poured onto the tea leaves but they were not actually cooked in the kli rishon, ideally one should not pour hot water from a kli rishon directly onto them on Shabbat. If he has no other option he may pour the hot water onto them. If before Shabbat he did not cook them at all, not in a kli rishon and not by pouring hot water onto them from a kli rishon, he may not do so on Shabbat.

The DSH is brought to you in memory of Rabbi Mordechai ben Daniel. Please visit us online at
