Use one heaped teaspoon per person, and one for the pot, if using. Darjeeling is best treated more like a Green tea when brewing to reduce astringency, so add freshly boiled water, well off the boil at 85-90°C, and allow to infuse for a full 3 minutes, then remove the leaves if possible.
Best served without milk and sugar to fully appreciate the authentic complex flavours. Otherwise, add 1-2 drops of fresh lemon juice.
Optimal Brewing Time & Temperature: 3 minutes at 85-90°C
