Ceramic Teapot:

  • Add 8oz water and infuse for 3 min.

Gai Wan (Recommended for best infusions):

  • Add water and infuse for 8 seconds for 2 infusions
  • Repeat for another 4+ infusions and increase the steeping time by 5 seconds with each additional infusion 

We strongly encourage experimenting with different quantities, steeping times and tea wares to find your most desired result. However, avoid over heated water, as it will over-extract the bitter compounds and astringency of the tea, whereas water that’s too cool might not fully extract the aroma and flavor.
