Good quality water and correct brewing time are crucial for
                  the perfect cup of tea
• Boil fresh cold water
Use cold, fresh water from the tap. Never use water from the hot tap.

• Always pre-warm the teapot
Simply fill your teapot and teacup with very hot water and let it stand for a
few minutes. This will prevent the water dropping below perfect brewing
temperature once it has been poured in the cup or pot.

• Add the correct amount of tea to the pot - don’t over-measure
It isn’t necessary to add an extra teaspoon “for the pot”. The following
information should help with quantities.
For each 250mL cup add:

  Pai mu tan          2 tsp
  Green Tea           1 tsp
  Oolong Tea          2 tsp
  Black Tea           1 tsp
  Herbal Infusion     start with 1 tsp and increase to taste

• Bring water to a rolling boil
But don’t let it boil for too long as it will boil away some of the flavour
releasing oxygen and you will get a flat tasting tea. For white and black
tea, pour water the moment it boils. For green, oolong and herbal
infusions pour water 1 - 2 minutes after it boils to avoid scalding the
delicate leaves

• Infuse for a full 3 - 5 minutes especially large leaf tea

• Strain and serve
