Brewing

Gong Fu (Chinese) Style

leaves  |  water  |  time

      6 g          150 ml 95°C     30 sec

* We advise you to rinse the leaves in the same temperature water for a few seconds before first infusion. This will help the leaves to open up and get ready for brewing.

Western Style

PLEASE NOTE:

Regardless the brewing style, you can re-steep tea and get many servings of tea from just one serving of leaves. If you are going to do so, be careful not to oversteep the tea.

We highly recommend using filtered water; do not use tap water. Water quality affects tea taste!

*  Use this guide just as a starting point and try different ways to get your best cup of tea.
