After testing multiple brewing methods with this tea I have found my favorite:

I average 5-6 steepings in my 8oz yixing teapot using 1 heaping tsp of leaves (aprox. 4g)

The sweet honeysuckle and orchid aroma builds upon each steeping and diminishes around the 5th.

The color of the brew starts off a very pale yellow and turns into a deeper yellow/green at the final infusion.

The taste starts off very floral and strong and smooths out and sweetens with each additional brew.

I generally add 15 seconds to each steeping which is more than enough to get a new and unique aroma and flavor each steeping.

I highly recommend this tea!

Bio

I am fairly new to loose leaf tea brewing and am already addicted and am quickly coming to find which teas I prefer. My favorite teas thus far are pure green and oolong teas and I tend to stay away from anything flavored or too brisk and astringent.

I am a very active person and have been an athlete all my life which encouraged me to study sports science and wellness. I am very passionate about health and wellness and enjoy weight lifting, running, cooking (and eating :) and of course, brewing tea!
