Tea Making Instruction
  1. Warm up your teapot with boiling water. Then drain completely.
  2. Fill the teapot with tea, covering about 1/5 to 1/3 of teapot's depending individual's preference in taste.
  3. Pour hot water (temperature should range from 80°C-85°C for non-oxidized tea, 90°C-95°C for oxidized tea) into the teapot to half full, then immediately drain into a pitcher, using such water to rinse the teacups. This brew is known as the warm-up brew.
  4. Next is the first brew. For lightly- or non-oxidized tea, pour hot water into the teapot and let it steep for 40-60 seconds. For more heavily oxidized tea, pour hot water into the teapot and let it steep for 20-40 seconds. Then pour into the tea pitcher.
  5. Pour tea from the pitcher into the scent cup and let is stay for a few seconds. The pour into the drinking teacup. Enjoy the aroma left behind on the scent cup and drink from the drinking teacup.
  6. Repeat the brews. The tea may serve you through the process as many as 6 to 8 times. Increase each brew's steeping time in increments of 15-30 seconds.
