Brewing Guide: 1 to 2 teaspoon (2 grams) of tea leaves is recommended for every 150ml (5 oz) of water. Ideal water temperature is 100°c (212°F). For the first and second brewing, leaves should be steeped for about one minute. Gradually increase water temperature and steeping time for subsequent brewing. It is also recommended that you use porcelain or glass-based teaware. Warm the steeping vessels by rinsing them with hot water prior to brewing.
A University study has concluded that short and long-term jinjunmei black tea consump-
-tion everses endothelial vasomotor dysfunction in patients with coronary artery disease.
This finding may partly explain the association between tea intake and decreased cardi-
-ovascular disease events.
In 2006,a German study concluded that the addition of milk prevents vascular protective
effects of tea.Theaflavin-3-gallate,a theaflavin derivative found in black tea,could reduce
the incorporation of cholesterol into mixed micelles.
