How do I prepare this tea?
For Western style brewing
Use 2g of leaf to 300ml of water (china tea cup size).
Bring the water to boil, then leave for a minute, this gives the water a chance to cool to about 90 degrees.
Then pour over the leaves. Infuse for approx 90 seconds.
Leaves used this way can be reused up to 4 times!
For Gong Fu or Chinese style brewing
