You need a tea pot or big glass with a strainer.
Pour hot water over 1-2 Ku Ding Stick.
Wash the Kuding tea for less than 10 seconds, strain the tea and pour the water away.
Pour the hot water (around 80-90 degree C) over the Kuding Tea.
Steep for 1 minute.
Strain the tea and enjoy!

Steeping Notes:

Since this tea has a very concentrated taste, it is suggested to brew this tea with less tea leave and more water. For example, one Kuding stick with 500ml of water.
The taste should be only slightly bitter, and over-steeping will make it extremely bitter!
Kuding tea can always stand at least 2-3 brewings. To avoid over-bitterness of the infusion and guarantee the flavor of next brewing, remeber to take the tea leaf out of the water after sufficient time of brewing.
Steep Kuding tea for 1 minute at 80-90 degree C for the first and second brewing. Gradually increase steeping time and temperature for subsequent brewing.
