Brewing instructions from our friends at Verdant Tea who know how to make a perfect cup of tea:
Use 4-5 g of tea per 8oz of water. Rinse leaves once, very quickly, with 205 degree water. Steep for 25-35 seconds. Enjoy at least 5 infusions. Filtered water and a large brew basket are ideal. For best results, brew only 8 oz at a time instead of using a large pot or mug.
Gongfu Style Brewing
Use 5g of tea for a 4-5oz yixing clay teapot or taiwan. As a general rule, I like to fill up my pot 1/2 full with leaves. This makes a potent tea, and requires you to pour the infusion out almost immediately, but it yields great complexity. Pour boiling water into pot and immediately pour out into pitcher. Pour this rinse over the pot and cups used. Repeat rinse a second time. Steep for 2-4 seconds each infusion, and enjoy at least 18 infusions.
