Brewing Suggestions: This tea can be thoroughly enjoyed in a western style teapot or in a porcelain gaiwan.
We recommend using spring or filtered water. Heat to 175F/80C. Use 2.5g / 3 tsp of tea for 12 oz of water. Steep 4-6 minutes.
For gongfu style, we recommend using a porcelain gaiwan. Using a semi porous clay pot will dull the flavor. Heat water to 175F. Use 1g of tea for 1.5 oz of water. Steep first infusion for 15-20 seconds. Increase 5-10 seconds on following steeps.
