The most common type of Shengbai tea is a glass, and the best is a special porcelain cup. Tea Saint Lu Yu has a special account of tea utensils in the "Tea Classic".

Gently infuse about 1/4 of the water in the cup and shake it clockwise to allow the tea leaves to initially absorb moisture and the tea leaves to slowly unfold. This process is also called wake-up tea, which means to wake up the sleeping tea leaves.

7. Brewing

When brewing, the method of water injection by swirling can be used to appreciate that the tea leaves rotate up and down in the cup, and the amount of water added should be controlled to account for about two-thirds of the cup. Let it rest for 2 minutes after brewing.
