How to brew?
For a classical method of brewing tea, use a porcelain teapot. Porcelain retains warmth better and lets a full flavour develop.
Don’t use boiling water if you’re brewing green tea. Fullness and astringency of taste may be destroyed by boiling water.
- Warm up the teapot before brewing tea;
- Put 2 tablespoon in the pot (7 g.);
- Pour over water with a temperature 85°C;
- Wait for 5 min and try it.
The authentic method involves brewing several times. This way you can taste fresh notes of tea better and feel a fullness of taste.
For this method of brewing, you need a gaiwan, a lidded bowl without handles. A gaiwan is good for green teas with flavourful aroma because they allow you to infuse the tea several times and enjoy your drink even longer. You can also use a teapot.
- Warm up a teapot/gaiwan before brewing tea;
- Put 5 g of tea in thr pot;
- First brewing: rinse tea with water (90+°C);
- Second and third brewings last about 20-40 seconds;
- Next fourth and fifth brewings you should make for 90 and 120 seconds.
