Also known as Jin Xuan or Golden Lily. Warning: contains milk essence; not advised for those with lactose intolerance.
Bring filtered or spring water to 195°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 4 minutes.
Infuse a tablespoon of leaves in a small pot for just about a minute. The tea is then re-infused and served 2 or 3 more times. Each infusion yields a different liquor and experience from the proceeding cup.
