    The Art Of Tea Tasting

    No, my dear and I are not PRO in Chinese tea. But, he does has a collection of Tea leaves. I know how to drink only. lol
    We used to have Tea Tasting Sessions when we are free. I miss those Tea Tasting sessions!
    Dear ar, when can we have the next Tea Tasting session?

    OK, briefly show you guys how we prepare the tea. We might have left out some of the steps, as I mentioned, we are not PRO, we are learners.

    Clean all 'utensils' - preferably with hot water


    Put some tea leaves into the tea pot, and pour boiling water over the tea leaves


    Pour the tea out almost immediately - the main purpose of doing this is to clean the tea leaves without 'washing' away it's taste


    Use the 'first round' tea to clean all the 'utensils' again


    Pour boiling water over the tea leaves again (second round).


    Wait for one minute before pouring out the 'second round' tea from the tea pot to the 'tea leaves filter'.


    Remove the 'tea filter' from the tea jug


    Pour the tea into tea cups


    Ready to serve....




    p/s: Hope you enjoyed the 'mini tutorial' on Chinese tea preparation...
