They mean that water temperature for a zavarivaniye has to be same. And this is true. But there are some subtleties without which it is possible not to see all that beauty for the sake of which knitters of tea for the sake of whom, by the way, you paid considerable money worked.
What is the connected tea? Probably, happening in tea benches, you paid attention to figures, various in a form, which sell not by weight, and a la carte. This is also the connected (knitted) tea.

Before making the connected tea, the teapot is drenched with boiled water. That the portion figure drowned, but did not float on a surface, the teapot or other ware are covered surely.
The majority of types of the connected tea can be made several times, however is also such which make only once. Buying tea, surely take an interest at the seller how many tea leaves are admissible. If it is 3 - 4 tea leaves, then time of everyone of the subsequent should be increased for 3-4 minutes.
