  • 2 tsp Tie Guan Yin tea leaves
  • 8 oz water


  1. Fill both the teapot and the cup about halfway with hot water to preheat them.

  2. Tilt them a bit so that the water creeps up the side and then rotate them so the insides get wet all the way around. Then pour the water out.

  3. Put tea leaves into the teapot.

  4. Fill the teapot with 194 to 205 degrees F water.

  5. Place the lid on the teapot and let the tea steep for 2 minutes.

  6. Pour the tea into the teacups and enjoy.

Recipe Notes

You can get 3 to 6 infusions out of most Tie Guan Yin teas. Increase the steeping time by 30 seconds or so for each infusion.
