  2. Place the suggested amount of tealeaves in the warm pot and rinse tealeaves with hot water. This action brings out the initial flavour of tealeaves.
  3. Warm teacups with hot water.
  4. Never fill up a cup one at a time. Arrange the cups in a circle and pour the brew out in a continuous circular motion.
  5. In other words, pour a small amount of tea into each cup in a few rounds until they are full. This ensures the taste of the tea is perfectly balanced.
