Brewing Recommendations

Proportion: 4-6g of tea per 100ml purified water

Ideal brewing vessel: Clay tea pot

Awaken: Pour 212F water over dry leaves and allow them to awaken for 40 seconds before discarding wash.

Steeping: Boil water to 212F and then wait for the water to stop bubbling before pouring the water into the pot. Replace the tea pot lid. Brew for a few seconds and then pour the liquor into a gong dao bei (fairness pitcher) before apportioning into tea cups.  Flash brewing in this manner ensures this tea can be brewed up to 10+ times and brewed again the following morning if left overnight.
