Preparation: In this blog post you will find a description of how to brew Bai Ye Traditional Oolong tea in an optimal way.
Tip: The aroma in the mouth unfolds best when the tea is not drunk too hot, but waits until it has cooled down a little in the cup.
This tea is especially suitable for preparation in the Gaiwan or in a small Yixing pot in Chaozhou Gongfu style. Brewing times should not be too long, as Dancongs naturally contain more bitter substances. If you dose the amount of leaves well, you can still steep it directly in a pot or cup and just let the leaves sink to the bottom and add some hot water if necessary.
