You will need about 5 – 7 tea leaves per pot,
Step 1- place the leaves in a sieve or strainer and gently rinse them (luke warm water for 30 seconds) without touching them.
Step 2 Boil a small amount of water and place it in the tea pot, swirl the water around to warm the pot. Once the pot is warm add a splash or two of cold water and then add your tea leaves.
Step 3 Swirl the leaves in the pot for 15 seconds then fill the remainder of the tea pot with boiling water.
Step 4 let the tea sit (brew) for 10 minutes then pour yourself and a friend a cup.
Repeat steps 2 – 4 up to three times and enjoy your fresh white tea! The flavour will be mellow and smooth, very delicate and distinctive. This is an extremely healthy brew with an earthy aroma.
