The farmer style is a popular brewing method in China because it is made of really easy and simple steps. For this preparation, in fact, you just need to put a little quantity of tea leaves in a mug and pour some hot water on their. After some minutes the fully hydrate leaves start to move down to the bottom of the cup allowing you to sip the infuse rich of flavor. At this point, usually, the Chinese people drink half of their cup so they could dilute with more hot water the remaining concentrate infuse and extend the duration of their tea time.
