Standard Tea Judging in Taiwan
The standard tea judging set in Taiwan is: White porcelain 150 mL cylindrical lidded cup, a white porcelain bowl, and a white porcelain spoon.
This set is used for judging at competitions and for tasting tea when buying.
In Taiwan, the standard tea judging method is to brew 3 grams of tea for six minutes in 150 ml of boiling temperature water.
The brewed tea is then poured into the bowl and left to sit for 2 to 3 minutes to cool to an optimal temperature. The next steps are to view the color and consistency of the brewed tea, then to smell the brewed tea leaves in the cup, before finally tasting the tea.
