How to Make Perfect Tea

How to Make Perfect Sencha Tea:

  1. Put the tea leaves in a pot. For 3 servings use 2 table spoons of tea (about 7~9 g). For 5 servings use 2 full table spoons of tea (about 11~13 g). Adjust to taste.
  2. Fill up a tea cup to 80% with hot water into 3 small cups for Sencha (about 60ml each) and let it cool down to a temperature of 70℃~75℃. A lower temperature will produce a milder and rounder taste, while higher temperatures will make the tea taste more sharp. If you enjoy sharp tasting teas, a temperature of 85℃~90℃ is suitable.
  3. Fill up the water back into the pot from the 3 cups and wait for one minute. When a higher temperature is desired, just wait for 30 seconds.
  4. Fill up the tea evenly into the 3 cups to obtain the same taste and concentration. Do not leave any tea in the pot, but fill up all out to the last drop.
  5. For a second infusion, use water of a little higher temperature than for the first and let the tea draw for only 10 seconds before filling up it into the cups.
