Brewing Guide: It is best to use a strong knife to carefully pry out the desired amount leaves and place in a teapot. Use 2-3g of tea leaves or fill the teapot 1/4 to 1/3 full with tea leaves. Ideal water temperature is boiling temperature at 100°C (212°F). For the first and second brewing, leaves should be steeped for about one minute. Gradually increase water temperature and steeping time for subsequent brewing. It is also recommended that you use Yixing purple clay (Zisha) teaware. Warm the steeping vessels (cups and teapot) by rinsing them with hot water prior to brewing. Good for many infusions.
