Eddie's Tea Pot

In Taiwan Eddie gave me a tea pot and gave me his advice on how to make the perfect pot of tea. The Tiger on the lid stands for the man. The spout stands for the woman. The man must always be shown above the woman. Woman bears all things. Holding everything. The handle is the dragon.
  1. Fill lid above rim with tea. Empty into pot. 
  2. Fill pot with boiling water. 
  3. Steep for 20 seconds the first time. (use all the water) 
    1. 15 seconds the second time. 
    2. 30 seconds the third time. 
    3. 40 seconds the fourth time. 
Never use soap to clean the pot, only hot water.
