2 tsp per 8 oz of water, 195°F, 4-5 min. When using a Yixing tea pot or a Gaiwan, use two to three times as much tea and steep same tea leaves (between 30 sec and 2 min) multiple times until the flavor fades.

- Nuanced, sweet, & smooth - incredible value!
- A bit more oxidized more than a typical Se Chung
- Produced at a high-altitude garden
- Rolled three times (tightly), enabling the tea to unfurl slowly as it is brewed, yielding several flavorful (and unique) infusions
