    The Legend of Da Hong Pao

    Kungfu brewing recommended
    Independent from teaware you use to steep Da Hong Pao, the steeping temperature should be always at 100 C (212 F). For easy brewing simply steep 2-5 gram of leaves for 3-4 minutes in a teapot or mug. However, to fully appreciate rock tea, it's highly recommended to steep it in a yixing teapot or gaiwan, using the Chinese flash brewing (or kungfu brewing) method. See below the instructions for kungfu brewing.

    Rinse the teaware with hot water.
    Fill the teapot or gaiwan 1/2 full with leaves.
    Add hot water to rinse the leaves and discard the water.
    Add hot water again and steep for just 5 seconds before serving.
    For the second brew increase the steeping time to 8 seconds.
    For the third brew increase the steeping time to 15 seconds.
    You can steep Da Hong Pao up to 8 times when using this flash brewing method. For the fourth brew and after, adjust the steeping time accordingly at each step. Use the experience of the previous steeps to determine the brewing time. If the previous brew was too light, then try increase the steeping time more. If the previous brew was too strong, then try to steep the next brew shorter. Notice the taste and aroma evolving at each step, which makes drinking this tea so pleasurable.
