    • visual and aroma of the infused and dry leaf.

    • Use cool filtered water, not distilled water

    • Do not use water that has already been
    • heated.
      • Previously heated water has lost its necessary
      • minerals for flavors decreasing the quality of the
      • cup of tea that is 97% water.
