Brewing Instructions: Always use fresh water. Bring water to near boiling point. Take one teaspoon of tea leaves in a cup. Pour the heated water (near boiling point) and steep the tea for 3-4 mins. Adjust the time of brewing as per desired strength. The Leaves can be steeped multiple times till it gives flavour.
Tea Master Recommendation: Not to be had with milk. Always use fresh water. Do not use re-boiled water. The brewed leaves can be steeped multiple times with an increase in steeping time. Sip it when it cools down a little instead of boiling hot for enhanced flavour.
