How to brew Sencha

  1. Place the Sencha in a kyusu (Japanese teapot).

    One teaspoon (3 to 5 grams) per tea cup is a general rule, but you can adjust as you like.

  2. Cool the boiling water.

    Pour boiling water into a yuzamashi (a bowl-like tea utensil) to let it cool down. You can also use tea cups for this purpose.

  3. Pour boiling water into a kyusu.

    Pour just enough of the cooled (approx. 70 ºC) water into the kyusu to fill the tea cups that you will serve.

  4. Extract.

    Let the tea disperse for about 30 seconds.
    You can shake the kyusu gently to extract the tea quickly.

  5. Pour the tea into each cup.

    Fill each cup little by little and evenly. There is an order for pouring the tea: cup 1 – cup 2 – cup 3 and then 3-2-1. By pouring into each cup little by little, the tea is evenly distributed so that the amount and strength of tea in each cup is equal.

  6. Pour until the last few drops.

    The strongest taste of the tea is concentrated in the last few drops.
    If tea remains in the kyusu, the next pot of tea will be bitter.

    If you don't have a yuzamashi, you can use tea cups to let the boiling water cool.

  2. Cool water for a while.

  3. Place tea leaves into the kyusu.

  4. Pour the water from the tea cups into the kyusu.

    Pour the water cooled in the tea cups into the kyusu.

    Shake the kyusu gently to extract the tea leaves quickly.

  6. Pour into each tea cup evenly.

    Pour the tea into each cup little by little in turns.

  7. Pour to the last few drops.

    Pour a little tea into one cup at a time in the order of 1-2-3 and then 3-2-1. In this way, you can make the amount and strength of the tea even.

How to make iced green tea

  1. Place tea leaves into the kyusu.

    Place a few more tea leaves into the kyusu than usual.

  2. Pour the boiling water from the pot into the kyusu.

    Put some pieces of ice into the glasses and pour the tea. Pour the tea into each glass little by little in turns just as you did for Sencha to make the tea even.
