After reading this morning of using a 7 oz glass to steep this, I wanted to try it but didn’t have anything that small so I used my press and added 12 oz of water. That is about a third of what I have used in the past for flowering teas. 1 minute steep in boiling water. The globe amaranths were poking out of the water. The bloom was spanning almost the width of the press. Taller and narrower would be better. Using less water brought forth the jasmine scent but the globe amaranth dominates. I do think less might be more with this tea. The flavor is much more intense. I have read a lot of reviews warning of the dread hibiscus, well here it is the globe amaranth. If you aren’t a fan you will have an issue.

I made mine in the tall and skinny Bodum iced tea pitcher that I usually reserve for cold brewing. I think the shape does work well for flowering teas. I was going to buy the one from Lupicia, but now i think I may get the ones from pure puer.com instead. They even have a pretty glass fairness cup (small pitcher) to match and they are not at all expensive. Great service, too.
