Cost Per Cup

68¢ per cup based on 0.11oz of tea per 5.1 fl oz of water and 3 infusions.

Very Rare Longjing is best brewed hotter and quicker than other green teas. The wonderful thing about loose leaf green tea, as with all our teas, is that you have a great deal of flexibility when it comes to extracting the tea in different ways. You can vary the amount of tea you use for different infusion methods. For really stunning results use 0.11oz of tea in a Gaiwan and enjoy four or five smaller, quicker extractions (approx. 20 - 30 seconds each).
