For one cup or glass, use 1-2 grams Fire Jade. Don't start with too many pearls per steep. For a teapot or the Kung Fu tea set you need 3 to 4 grams. Pour the leaves with 70-80°C hot water. Depending on personal preference, wait for a short moment up to a minute for an infusion. However do not let the tea steep too long, otherwise the taste becomes too strong or even bitter.
