Japanese Green Tea
1. Fill kettle with fresh water, then heat.
2. Warm your teapot with a little hot water, discard, place your tea leaves in teapot, allowing heat of the pot to release bouquet of the tea leaves.
3. Heat water below boiling (approx. 175-180°). Steep 2.5 teaspoons up to 3 minutes, refresh as desired.
*Vary time according to taste, & remember that steeping tea leaves beyond 3 mins does not contribute to flavor, only bitterness.
