Smoky, sweet caramel and dark chocolate flavors were developed when this highly oxidized TieGuanYin was baked at a high temperature using a charcoal firing. A full, rich brew that delivers a full roasted infusion with solid notes of cinnamon and amber.
Prepare 3 grams of tea leaf (slightly less than a teaspoon) per 100ml of water(about half a cup).
For the first two steeps, 96°c water for no longer than 60 seconds will provide plenty of flavor. From the third steep onward it is fine to add up to thirty additional seconds per steep. This should provide between four and six re-steeps depending on the quality of the tea. For larger vessels (teapots of over 500ml) re-steep potential is usually lower.
