Add 2 heaped teaspoons per cup (that’s around 4-6 grams) and pour on 100°C water straight off the boil. Rinse the tea by steeping for 10 seconds then pour and discard. Then steep again as normal.
Infuse the tea for 1 – 2 minutes and enjoy.
Re-infuse 3 – 4 times.
Don’t forget, you can adjust any of the measurements to suit your style!
