The round canister has four flat panels. Two panels are decorated with the revered phoenix and dragon which are symbols of good fortune and prosperity. The remaining panels are decorated with the Chinese character for "tea" and a poem that reads I am making the tea with spring water in this beautiful mountain village. Having wonderful conversation with my best friend about the past.

    The phoenix and dragon are depicted on the raised round knob of lid.

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
