It is important to emphasize that yellow tea works best freshly prepared.
After boiling in the teapot, the water is allowed to cool down around 5 minutes to reach the optimal temperature between 70-80 °C.
Amount of yellow tea:
– put 1 teaspoon of yellow tea on 2.5 dcl of water
– 1 tablespoon of yellow tea is added to 1 liter of water.
Keeping yellow tea in water:
Yellow tea is kept covered in water/strainer for between 2-3 minutes and then strained. During these few minutes, antioxidants (catechins) come to the surface and have a better effect on the body when the tea is drunk.
Yellow tea should not be drunk with sugar (sweetened) because in this way its effectiveness is reduced. If you really have to sweeten it, add honey or palm sugar, some kind of brown sugar or pure maple syrup to the tea.
