We encourage you to experiment with the amount of leaves, amount and temperature of water, and infusion times to reach your preferred strength of tea, but here's a suggestion for this particular tea:
3-5 grams of tea per 120ml of water at 75-80 degrees celsius. Infuse for 30 seconds. Reinfuse up to two times.
Pro Tip: Unlike Chinese teas, Japanese teas should not be rinsed, as the first cup is the most prized one.
Storage Instructions: Green tea is best stored in the refrigerator, in a dark, dry, and airtight container.
