White and yellow teas are among the most subtle.

That's a good question, and it really depends. You're going to want to experiment and find what's best for you. You can try starting with my method of 180°f water, 5-minute steep time. In my mind, I'm imagining a standard coffee-mug. For that, I would 1-2 tablespoons of tea. If it turns out too light, add more leaf.

Good luck!
