How to brew tea perfectly? First and foremost, it is essential to understand the seven principles of brewing tea.
7 Key Principles of Tea Brewing

Good Tea Leaves / 50%

The logic behind this is simple. Just like how giving Jiro Ono, the sushi god of Japan, a rotten fish wouldn't allow him to make good sushi, even if you have good tea leaves, no matter how much you don't know about brewing tea, the tea soup can still reach a 50-point level.

Confidence is Key / 10%

Usually, people who lack confidence tend to be humble in their actions, and the same applies to brewing tea.
"Humble" and "weak" are different. "Weak" means the concentration is not enough, resulting in a watery taste, while "humble" means the concentration is enough, but the flavor is slightly weak and not obvious.
For a good tea, the flavor of the tea soup must be full-bodied. Approach the process of brewing tea with confidence to fully experience it.

Joyful Mood / 10%

"Sweet" is a taste loved by the vast majority of people in this world.
To brew a sweet tea, it is absolutely necessary to maintain a happy mood.
When a person sincerely likes and enjoys brewing tea, the tea brewed will definitely be sweet.

Calm Focus / 10%

From the perspective of the essence of tea, tea carries the power of tranquility. The more calm your heart is when brewing tea, the more it can manifest the essence of the tea.
From the perspective of learning things, maintaining a high level of quiet focus is necessary for learning anything.
Given the opportunity, you can try comparing brewing the same type of tea with a calm mind and with a restless mind. The feeling of drinking it will be different.

Treasure the Tea Leaves / 10%

This part is very important!Treasure the tea leaves, first of all, requires understanding that tea leaves are the crystallization of heaven, earth, and human effort.
From the moment the tea tree is planted in the soil, it undergoes the nurturing of nature and the baptism of time. The tea leaves are then shaped by the tea master to finally become tea leaves in our hands.
And brewing tea, this final step, is to transform the essence contained in the tea leaves into a sweet and wonderful tea soup.
If we do not carefully protect and properly preserve them, it may lead to tea leaves breaking or the flavor of the tea leaves deteriorating. If we do not treat the brewing of tea with a sincere and respectful heart, casually brewing it, it may result in the flavor of the tea leaves not reaching the expected standard.
In that case, the effort put into planting and processing the tea leaves would be wasted.

High Pour, Low Pour / 5%

The seven principles prioritize mindset over technique. "High pour, low decant" is the only principle related to technique.
What is brewing tea? It refers to hot water coming into contact with tea leaves. If hot water falls from a higher point, the water pressure upon landing will be greater. The greater the water pressure, the more the water column impacts the tea leaves, resulting in a more fragrant tea soup.
What is decanting tea? It is the process of pouring the brewed tea into a tea pot or tea cup. Low decanting can avoid causing frothing when pouring tea, which leads to oxidation of the tea soup. Oxidation of the tea soup will destroy its sweetness.

Practice Makes Perfect / 5%

Repeat the previous 6 principles, practice continuously, internalize the mindset of facing tea leaves each time, and the natural state of each tea brewing process. Over time, you too can become a master of brewing tea!

Tea Brewing Demonstration:Lotus Cover Cup

The Lotus Cover Cup highlights the most elegant movement of sliding the cup cover, combining it with the balance and tranquility represented by the lotus flower. Moreover, it simplifies the sliding cup cover movement, which is most difficult for beginners, by simply pushing it with the thumb. The cup's design depicts the texture and curvature of lotus leaves. When the cup is opened, it is as if one can see the steam filled with tea fragrance condensing at the tip of the lotus leaf, creating a pure and delightful personal tea-drinking experience.

Tea Brewing Demonstration:Cover Cup

The porcelain cover cup is one of the tea utensils suitable for both novices and experts, offering an elegant appearance when brewing tea. Porcelain, due to its small pores, accurately presents the flavor of the tea soup. The ivory-covered cup is small, easy to hold, with a simple and elegant design. Its pure white color facilitates observing the bottom of the leaves and the tea soup. After using it once, you will fall in love with the elegant feeling of brewing tea. It can also be paired with cups, tea trays, and tea pots of the same material to create an overall tea-drinking feast.

Tea Brewing Demonstration: Yixing Clay Teapot

Compared to materials like ceramic and glass with smaller pores, it brews tea with the "original flavor" of the tea soup. The purple clay teapot, made of Zhu Ni clay, enhances the tea soup's fragrance, sweetness, and mellowness. With a good purple clay teapot, you can further understand the unique beauty of Taiwanese tea as you continue to drink tea over time.

Tea Brewing Demonstration:Jing Sheng Yu Easy Tea Brewing Method

To allow more people to brew a pot of good tea anytime and anywhere, Jing Sheng Yu has designed a simple tea brewing method that differs from traditional methods. Although the method is simple, the resulting tea soup is astonishing.
The key lies in:
1.Increasing the amount of tea leaves
2.Shortening the soaking time
3.Covering the tea leaves with water
4.Concentrating multiple infusions of tea soup before enjoying
5.Adjusting the concentration midway through by tasting

Tea Brewing Demonstration: Cold Brewing Tea

All types of tea leaves can be cold-brewed because during the production process, there is no specific step that makes tea leaves exclusively for cold brewing. There are many cold-brew-specific tea products on the market. The term "specific" actually means that the tea leaves are pre-packed in individual bags for easy cold brewing.
