Blend Numerology

Reserve No. 402: The second tea in our 4th Reserve Series. 

Preparation

For Western brewing, this tea can be brewed for single infusions using 3 grams of tea (or 1 Tablespoon) per 8 ounces of 212 degree water and steeped for five minutes.

For gaiwan brewing, place 7 grams of tea leaves into 150 ml (5 ounce) gaiwan. Bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to a boil (212 degrees). Fill your gaiwan to the top and let the leaves steep for 10-20 seconds. Set the strainer on top of the decanter and pour the tea out of the gaiwan with the lid slightly askew, without allowing the tea leaves to escape. Serve into small cups and repeat this process at least 4-5 times and notice how the tea leaves change in flavor over each infusion. Learn more about gaiwan service here.
