Medium Roasted Taiwanese Oolong Tea.
Fill the pot 1/5 full of dry leaf, add 195° water and allow to stand for 60 seconds before decanting and drinking. The second brew should steep for 20 seconds, the third for 45 seconds, the fourth for 1 minute 20 seconds, and the fifth for 2 minutes 20 seconds, etc. Please note that, as flavor particulates sink, decanting into a pouring pitcher and from there to cups seems to work best. Alternatively, cups can be partially filled, then topped off in reverse order, so flavor in each cup will be approximately the same.
Simply add to your infuser one heaping teaspoonful of leaf per 8 oz. of water and place it in your pot, then add the appropriate amount of 195° water and let it steep for 4 minutes. Remove the infuser and serve! Can be steeped multiple times.
