Steep 1 teaspoon (2 grams) of tea leaves per cup (8 oz. or 250 ml) for 4-5 minutes in hot water. If you want a 'light' or less flavourful/strong brew, keep the leaves in the hot water for 3.5 – 4 mins. If you want a 'stronger' or more flavourful brew, keep the leaves in the hot water for longer (5 mins).
For iced tea, steep 2 teaspoons (4 grams) to 300ml of water and 'cold brew' over night in the refrigerator. Add some lemon to enhance the acidic flavours in this tea.
