We highly recommend doing one rinse of 5-10 seconds (at 195 degrees) and then beginning with 15-20 second infusions for a bit before slowly increasing steeping time. It is not unusual to get 10 to 15 steepings out of this tea when prepared gongfu cha style.
- Oolong tea may be given a 5 to 10 second rinse with the same temperature water as used for brewing. This warms the pot and primes the leaf, readying it for optimal flavor extraction. 195˚ F water temperature.
- Use 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon, depending on tea, per 8oz. of filtered water
- Recommended first steeping of 30 seconds. Add 30 seconds for each subsequent infusion up to 3 minutes.
- Tea brewing is meant to be a joyful exploration. There are no hard and fast rules. Experiment with the quantity of tea that you use, and steeping times. Enjoy discovering what your preferences are. They may change day to day.
