Updated: Nov 23, 2019

Use one tablespoon of loose tea leaf (about two grams) for five 100 ml water. The amount of loose leaf tea can be adjusted by yourself according to your own taste and the temperature of water should be controlled at 95-100°C. Then brew for about one minute before drinking.

Yellow tea can stand up to three to five infusions. The second steeping may last for two minutes and the third should last a bit longer etc. If you use a glass, you can enjoy the scene of golden tips or the delicate leaves floating straight in the water.
