To properly prepare your infusion, you must follow these steps.
Firstly, you will need P A T I E N C E
The water must be soft and fresh. Using purified water allows tea to properly infuse and express itself.
Put the tea in the filter of the cup or the teapot → How much tea do I use? Between 2 to 3 grams (one full teaspoon) per 200 ml of water (one cup of standard tea) is ideal on most teas. In case you are preparing a teapot, a tablespoon per cup and we can not forget an extra for the teapot, a matter of tradition and volume.
Pour the hot water - never let it boil - on the leaves and let them rest the corresponding time according to the variety of tea. Here below we leave you a table with recommended temperatures and the steeping time but sometimes there are exceptions*.
WHITE TEA: 60-70 ºC/1,5 minutes of infusion.
