I suppose if you are just going to infuse the leaves once, 7 minutes would be about right. But that just seems wasteful to me. White tea is expensive, and a great range of flavor can really be brought out through multiple infusions. (Not to mention, it makes the tea cheaper per cup.)
How much water do you use per infusion?
Technically, a cup is 8 oz. but some companies will specify a 6 oz. cup.
Of course it is a joy to experiment too! Tks.
