Chinese black teas can range drastically in flavor and aroma but generally produce very full bodied, strong infusions. A water temperature of 180 to 200 F is sufficient to bring the rich character of the leaf. Some recommend water at a full, rolling boil, but in our opinion boiling reduces the oxygen content in good water and gives the tea a flatter taste as opposed to a livelier taste from slightly cooler water. Chinese black teas with small leaf brew faster than those with larger leaves and require shorter steeping times. We suggest steeping one teaspoon per 8 ounce cup of water for 3 to 4 minutes. A minute or so longer if you wish to add milk (a longer steeping time is needed to acquire enough astringency to balance the milk).
