How do you prepare Oolong Tea?

The first step to preparing oolong tea is to get your water at the correct temperature.  The water should be at 200 degrees and you should be careful not to over boil the water.  This raises the temperature, which could burn the leaves and give you a bitter tasting cup.  You add one teaspoon of tea to a 12-ounce cup and let it steep for 3 to 4 minutes.  Remove the leaves before service to stop the steeping process, but do not throw them away.  They can be used two to three times, each time revealing a different flavor from the leaves.
