Tips:

1. You can use tinfoil to cook seasonings to prevent sticking on the pot. And it is easy to clean after cooking as well.
 
2. If you like strong tea fragrance when chicken soaks tea fragrance, you can cook with small heat. Never use high heat or the tea leaves will burn.
 
3. Chicken breast side down when placing it to the pot, because breast meat is thick to cook and add flavor.
