🍵 The water used to steep this tea should be about 185-195°F or 85-90°C. Use about two teaspoons of tea leaves for about every 5 ounces (150 millilitres) of water. The steeping time of about 3-5 minutes is recommended with more or less time, depending on the desired concentration. As an estimated guide, the higher the temperature of the water or the greater the number of leaves used, the shorter the steeping time should be. The tea leaves should be uncurled for full flavour.
🍵 For the ultimate enjoyment, the teapot should be half filled with leaves and initially steeped for 45 seconds to 1 minute with the steeping time increased by an additional 15 seconds for each consecutive steeping. The leaves may be steeped multiple times for your enjoyment.
