Keys to make a good teacup
Use warm water for delicately flavored teas such as green tea and oolong tea and boiling water for herbal tea. Herbal tea needs boiling water to release all its flavor and aroma.
Amount of tea
Adding too much herbal tea to too little water will make the tea smell strong. However, if you do not put enough tea into the teapot, the taste will be too weak and plain. You should first try to add 300ml of water to 6g of tea, then adjust to your taste.
The brewing time of herbal tea will be different from other teas. Most herbal teas need longer than 5-7 minutes to release their full flavor.

How to brew herbal tea
Boil water: You should leave the water to cool a bit before pouring over herbal tea. Most herbal teas taste best when brewing at 80-90 degrees.
Warm the teapot: Pour boiling water into the empty pot, put the lid on for a few seconds then pour the water out.
Measuring tea: Put the right amount of tea in the pot. You can add other ingredients to enhance the taste such as red apple or goji berry.
"Wake" the tea: Pour hot water into the pot and leave for a minute to "wake" the tea, then pour the water out. This step helps tea ingredients to better release their flavors.
Brew the tea: Fill the pot with hot water, put the lid on, and leave for about 3-7 minutes depending on the type of tea. This is the most important step. Make sure the water temperature and brewing time are appropriate for the type of tea. Chamomile needs 3-5 minutes. Jasmine tea usually needs about 5.
Pour out the tea: After brewing, pour out the tea and enjoy it when it is still warm. You can re-brew the tea 3-5 times depending on the type of tea.
