Forever Spring
$5.00
This one is a creeper that is a keeper.  Deceptively rich, this tea has notes of gardenia and honey, with hints of buttered greens and a long lasting finish.

Tea Master: Ai Fang
Cultivar: Si Ji Chun
Brewing Suggestions: This tea is best enjoyed when drank in a gongfu style, using preferably a porcelain gaiwan.  Some semi porous pots work well with lightly oxidized oolong, but not all.  Teapot brewing instructions are also available below.  
Fill your vessel up from a third to half the way (1g of tea per 1 oz).  Using water fresh off the boil, steep first for 30 seconds.  On the second steep, shorten the steep to 20-25 seconds.  Then increase 5-10 seconds on each following steep.  
We recommend using spring or filtered water.  Heat to 195F/90C. Use 2.5g / 1.5 tsp of tea for 12 oz of water. Steep 4-6 minutes.
