Jasmine Tea 不知香.
This tea has a unique name even though Jasmine Tea is a common choice. The name in Chinese 不知香 literally means “don’t know what is fragrant”.
First you grab and huge pinch of tea leaves and put them into the clay teapot.
The you pour some simmering (almost boiling point) hot water into the pot. Give it a twirl and pour them into the tea cups.
This first brew is not meant to be drunk.
We were washing the leaves and preparing the cups for drinking.
Repeat the process and this time, pour the steeped tea into the “decanter” which acts as the tea service.
