    • Leaves/water: 1g/20ml
    • Water Temperature: 212°F

    Steps:

    • Rinse the tea wares with hot boiling water.
    • Insert tea leaves into the tea pot.
    • Pour boiling water straight into tea pot to rinse the tea leaves.
    • Immediately pour out the tea to other tea ware(rinse tea wares with first steep*).
    • Add hot boiling water into the tea pot again.
    • Covered with lid about 5 sec. for the first and second steep.
    • Pour out tea into a tea pitcher to share.
