How to brew Mao Jian Green Tea
Add 2 heaped teaspoons per cup (that’s around 3-4 grams) and pour on 80°C water (that’s about 3-4 minutes off the boil or until you can put a finger on the side of the kettle for about 2 seconds).
We recommend washing through this tea – that means pouring water through the leaves or discarding your first brew after a few seconds of infusing time. This will help stop the tea from becoming cloudy. Don’t worry if you forget or don’t have time though; you’ll still get the same great flavour.
Infuse the tea for 2-3 minutes and enjoy.
This tea is delicate but very forgiving. infusing for longer will still produce a very smooth tea, however, using water which is too hot on a green tea can make it bitter.
Re-infuse 2 – 3 times.
Don’t forget, you can adjust any of the measurements to suit your style!
