Preparation advice: Infuse this tea in a small teapot, ideally between 20 and 30cl. Place 5g of leaves in the teapot, cover with lightly mineralized water heated between 70 and 80 degrees, wait about 40 seconds, and serve. The way of serving is important, you have to pour 2cl, return to a horizontal position, then 2cl, etc... This allows the tea to be stirred in the teapot and allows a better diffusion of the flavors. This also promotes congestion-free service.
