Yellow tea - second infusion

by Rayuela » Oct 24th, '10, 17:01


I've been drinking pre-rain Mo gan yellow tea and whilst the first infusion is superb, subsequent infusions reveal almost nothing, even with boiling water.
I'm brewing 1 1/2 tsps in 100mls in a gaiwan.
Any suggestions (up dosage?), or is that just the way of the yellow tea?

yellow teas can go more then just one infusion
Maybe water is too hot? How long is brew time?
