2 heaping tsp per 8 oz of water, 195°F, 2-4 min. When using a yixing teapot or a gaiwan, use twice as much tea and steep the same tea leaves 1-2 minutes multiple times until the flavor fades.

- In Chao Zhou, a city in eastern Guangdong, meals traditionally start and finish with this tea. It pairs well with Chao Zhou's culinary specialties: goose, rich taro dessert, and egg white dumplings.
- Very aromatic with a distinctive dry finish. Just as enjoyable cold!
