Standard Brewing Guidelines:
Water Temperature: 195°F
Leaf to Water Ratio: 1 tablespoon per 8 ounces
Steep Times: 3 minutes (1st infusion), 4 minutes (2nd infusion), 5 minutes (3rd infusion)

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

This is a great jin xuan example. It doesn't taste like a high elevation jin xuan, but the flavor is very meritorious regardless. I can tell that it was processed with great skill.

The tea has great longevity. I found that 1.5 grams/oz is better than 2 grams/oz for this tea.

Very clean body, and just good overall. I would buy this again.
