Storage: Avoid high temperatures and humidity. Avoid any transfer of aroma to the tea leaves.
Boil some fresh water (or filtered water in some regions).
Warm the teapot and tea cups with some of the boiled water.
Place 5g of leaves (enough for 2 cups) inside the teapot, then pour in about 400cc of boiled water. Use a stove to boil the water, as it will not reach 100C° with an electric kettle.
Cover the tea pot with a tea cozy and let the tea steep for 5 minutes.
Pour the tea into the cups. If more there is more than one tea cup, pour a little amount into each cup one by one, to get a consistent colour and taste. Continue pouring until the last drop.
After pouring the tea, wait for around 2 minutes before drinking. In this way, you will be able to more fully enjoy the taste and aroma of Makaibairi tea.
