Measure out ½ to 2 tablespoons of tea leaves (4 to 5 grams per 12 fl. oz/354 ml of water) and place inside a teapot, tea mug, or French press. Brew using filtered, freshly boiled water (the ideal brewing temperature for this tea is 195 degrees F/90 degrees C). Steep, covered, for 1 to 3 minutes only (experiment), then strain. Add a sweetener of choice and milk if desired. The same tea leaves may be brewed up to five times, for the flavor and antioxidants (subsequent brews contain much less caffeine than the first brew). Add one extra minute to the second brew, and one more extra minute to the third brew, etc. To learn a brewing method that results in a tea with very little caffeine, look up the Gong Fu Cha method.
If you plan to use your tea over a period of time longer than one year, store it in an airtight glass or porcelain container away from light exposure.
