Brewing guide

The weight ratio of brewing Huangshan Mao Feng tea and water should be roughly 1:80 (that is, 80ml of water for one gram of tea). The best water temperature to brew this tea is about 84℃, and no higher than 95℃, otherwise the vitamins and nitrogen-based acids in the tea will be destroyed and the tea will have a bitter taste. Brew for about 3-5 minutes. If making tea for others, gradually adjust and increase the time according to the number of cups; under normal circumstances hot water can be added to the brewing tea 3-5 times. Traditionally, the tea is consumed from a glass or white porcelain teacup.
