Steeping notes

Tea: 5 grams, Time: 1 minute, Water: 70˚C/122˚F degrees, 200 ml.
Resteep 2x at 30 sec, 80C/158F, 200 ml.

To extract a syrup full of umami we recommend using the first steeping parameters. We encourage you to adjust the amount of water, temperature, etc to see what delicious flavors can be extracted with this tea. Subsequent steeps may be enjoyed as a sencha, steeping a full cup for 30 seconds at 80˚C/176˚F degrees.

Another great way to enjoy this Sencha is by ice-brewing. Allow ice cubes to melt over the leaves. It takes about 30 to 40 minutes and it is one of our favorite ways to enjoy this leaf and your friends will love it as well.
