Steeping instruction for each type of tea:
Generally, the higher the oxidized level, the lower the water temperature, so as not to overkill the water-soluble substances of tea, such as catechins (a type of antioxidant), and to prevent the taste from getting bitter.
Steep ware suggestion:
To let the whole leaves fully unfold and release flavor, please use a steep ware that offers ample room for tea expansion. It can be a pot steep ware, a cup steep ware, a bowl steep ware, or even a French press. The larger the capacity of a strainer or infuser, the better. Be sure to cover the cup or bowl to prevent the temperature from dropping too quickly and the tea aroma from dispersing into the air before the steeping is complete.

Is it price, brand, taste, country of origin, or the nitty-gritty tea district and tea plantation where it was produced? Ah, little doubt that price often is our first screener. But among all these decision points, if you can track the tea’s original source down to the tea plantation, you would be in a better position to judge its true value. Unfortunately, that most crucial information is often unavailable to end consumers, making tea shopping a constant guessing game that leads to a hit-or-miss experience. Even in...
For people looking for hangover remedies, tea sometimes makes it to the list of tips, but at other times is advised against. What has become even more complicated is when peppermint tea or ginger tea is being suggested as an effective cure. Which ingredient exactly is working? Is it peppermint and ginger, or is it tea? According to the director of gastroenterology of Taipei Medical University Hospital in Taiwan, Rui-Xiang Tang, there is no medical evidence yet to support the popular claim that drinking tea is effective to cure a hangover. People who claim its effectiveness may have to attribute the substantial amount of water being washed down that help speed up alcohol metabolism in the body, not attribute to...
For tea connoisseurs and specialty tea lovers, oolong tea is usually on their radar, as part of their tea appreciation journey. Oolong differentiates itself among the world of tea by the complex processing it involves to produce tastes not only complex but sustainable after several steepings.
