When brewing this tea, we recommend doing one or two “rinses” of the leaf with water at rolling boil. The rinses should be short, 5 or 10 seconds. The rinse warms your brewing vessel and primes the leaf, readying it for best flavor extraction. You may let the leaf rest for a minute or two, if desired, prior to your first steep. Shorter steeps for soft and light tea, longer for darker, earthier cup.
