Tea Making Instruction
- Warm up your teapot with boiling water. Then drain completely.
- Fill the teapot with tea, covering about 1/5 to 1/3 of teapot's depending individual's preference in taste.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
