Premium yellow teas are similar to quality green teas: made of young tender tea leaf tips. Please avoid over steeping the tea leaves.
- Quantity of tea leaves: about 1/2 tea spoon of the tea leaves per cup or 1 tea spoon per small tea pot. (The strength of the tea could be adjusted to personal preference by adjusting the amount of the tea leaves put in.)
- Boil water and pour into tea vessel, let the water temperature drop down to around 85-90OC before adding tea leaves.
- Allow to brew for 1-2 minutes before serving. Don't put a lid on the teapot to reduce the chance of stewing the tea.
- Repeat infusions: The tea leaves can be used for repeat infusions for up to 3-4 times by just adding hot water, slightly increase brewing time with each extra infusion.
- Most of premium Chinese teas are hand handled. We always recommend rinsing the tea leaves for up to 10 seconds before brewing.
- Recommended tea vessel: GLASS. Made of tender and young tea leaves, yellow teas present a dynamic and elegant 'under water forest' when hot water is added. Alternatively, a Zi Sha teapot is always good for Chinese teas.
- Do not soak tea leaves. Use a small tea vessel wherever it is possible. Fresh made and freshly served tea tastes the best.
Yellow teas’ storage:
- store in a cool, dry place that is absent from foreign odour;
- keep the unopened satchels refrigerated to prolong the freshness.
