Some teas manifest better in quick short infusions, some not. 5 minutes, 7 minutes or some even 8 — many green and black teas simply shine when they are steeped in a small leaf to water ratio and for a long time. A shallow vessel does not do the job well. A tall one with a thicker wall does. Like this Ming Yao Long Brew Maker. Complete with an efficient spout and a built-in strainer. From Ming Tao in Fujian. Bringing out quality takes patience. Give the tea enough infusion.
