This classic green tea will start you down a healthy path of drinking green tea.
Hot tea brewing method: When preparing by the cup, this tea can be used repeatedly about 3 times. The secret is to use water that is about 200' or 90'C. Place 1-1 1/2 teaspoons of leaves per person in a teapot and let the tea steep for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour and begin to enjoy a cup of enchantment - do not remove the leaves from the pot. Once the water level is low - add more water, and so on - until the tea flavor is exhausted. Milk or sugar are not recommended.
Iced tea brewing method: Place 6 teaspoons of tea into a teapot or heat resistant pitcher. Pour 1 1/4 cups of freshly boiled water over the tea. Steep for 5 minutes. Quarter fill a serving pitcher with cold water. Pour the tea into your serving pitcher straining the leaves. Add ice and top up the pitcher with cold water. Garnish and sweeten to taste. [A rule of thumb when preparing fresh brewed iced tea is to double the strength of hot tea since it will be poured over ice and diluted with cold water.]
