Black tea, Chrysanthemum
Yunnan Province, China
Tea: 1 piece Water: 90 C , 1cup Time: 5-8 minutes
Recommended number of steeping: 3
How to prepare:
There is no set rule for brewing tea because each tea type is different.
This is a rough guide to get you started . Experiment to find your ideal steeping time based on your personal taste.
Before preparing any type of tea always warm the teapot and tea cups by rinsing it with hot water.
Put 1 tea ball in the preheated tea pot and add water at 90 C over the tea leaves in a circular manner so all the leaves are wet. Let it steep for 5-8 minutes.
When brewing in a tea pot please pour the tea out in cups until the last drop to avoid over steeping the tea left in the teapot , resulting in a unpleasant and bitter flavor.
Don’t throw out your tea leaves after your first cup of tea. The same tea leaves can be steeped up to three times. Discover the nuances of tea with every infusion.
For the subsequent infusions, experiment by increasing the steeping time by 60 seconds each time and keep the water temperature the same (90 C).
