When brewing tea, the brewing time is short, and it is difficult to release all the tea's internal substances. When the tea is brewed, the tea leaves will roll with the flow of water. Under the continuous high temperature stimulation, the inner substance of the tea leaves can be released more thoroughly, so the brewed tea will be more mellow and sweet than the brewed tea.

When making tea, be careful to choose hot water to make the tea. When the tea soup starts to boil, you can put an appropriate amount of tea leaves, and then wait for the tea soup to roll again for about a minute, then turn off the heat, and wait for the tea soup to calm down, then the soup can be taken out.
