Now, let's talk about the relationship between water and tea art. Please imagine gurgling springs, the waves of rivers, misty vast lakes, and sweet and clear well water.
What is the ratio of tea to water when making tea? We always think about how much tea to put? It is different tea, do I need different quantity? Or is it all the same amount of tea? Let’s go over the basics of how much tea to serve.
Serve tea in proportion.
A commonly used ratio of tea and water for brewing tea is 1:50, that is, 1 gram of tea is added to 50 ml of water (except for oolong tea and pressed tea, the ratio of tea to water is about 1:30), so that it can be estimated How much dry tea to add.
Throw tea by volume.
Green tea and yellow tea
Green and yellow teas are considered the freshest and most tender of all teas. After being rubbed, the object leaches out quickly. Cover the bowl just enough to cover the bottom of the bowl when brewing.
The amount of black tea is similar to that of green tea, which can cover the bottom of the bowl, but it can be a little more than green tea. However, the leaves of the large-leaf species are larger and occupy a larger volume, so the amount of tea leaves when making tea is more than that of small-leaf black tea.
The amount of tea in the bar-shaped oolong accounts for about 1/5 to 1/3 of the bowl capacity, and the spherical oolong only needs to cover the bottom of the bowl.
Dry tea is generally light and fluffy, and the amount of tea added will be relatively large. Loose tea accounts for about 3/4 or 1/2 of the capacity of the tureen; white tea cake accounts for about 1/5 of the capacity of the tureen.
The amount of tea to be poured into the pressed tea accounts for about 1/5 of the capacity of the bowl. Some pressed teas are tighter and denser, so you can properly reduce the input of tea leaves for fine-tuning.
Making tea itself is a process of gradual proficiency. Rich tea experience brings not dogmatic rules and regulations, but more casual and comfortable tea. After several times of practice, tea lovers will definitely find out the amount of tea that best suits their taste.
