Way of cooking

Slightly warm a small teapot by rinsing it with boiling water. Wash the leaves in the teapot with a small amount of hot water, and then drain the water. Brew the washed leaves for 30-40 seconds, then strain and pour into cups. As for brewing, it is recommended to use boiled mineral water cooled down to a temperature of 90–95°C based on 1 table spoon of tea per 200 ml. We recommend brewing leaves 2–3 more times.
