Normally,the proportion of tea to water is 1:50 for brewing in glass and flexible for different tea quality to cater to different tastes.Tea dipping methods are also important for green tea. Application of top-, middle- or bottom-dipping methods or different cups will have different tastes and fragrance for the same tea. Refer to the Tips on pages 36-49 for green tea brewing skills.
