I've never done one. From what I gather, you can brew it like any other tea -- boiling water, preferably in a glass vessel so that you can see the tea bloom and enjoy looking at it. It should probably be a relatively tall vessel, too, as some of them tend to be very 'vertical.'
Often the blooming teas are more visual than... tasty.
