How to Brew a Perfect Cup (See diagram in picture gallery)

High quality Kamairi teas yield their maximum flavor when brewed at temperatures much lower than boiling, and for less time than other teas. Brew it in water that is too hot or for too long, and the tea will end up tasting bitter.

Hint: Use good water, and a non-reactive kettle. You can’t make good tea with bad water!

Brew Temp: Simmering (not boiling) water. 160-170 °F (70-77 °C).
Brew Time: 2 minutes
How Much: 1 tsp per cup (120 ml)

1 - Add Tea to Teapot

Add tea leaves to the empty teapot. One teaspoonful per cup is sufficient. However, you may adjust the amount depending on your own taste.

2 - Add Near Boiling Water to Cups

Pour hot water from kettle into each cup. Let the water cool down a bit in each cup for about 2 minutes.

3 - Pour Water from Cups into Teapot

Close the lid of the teapot. Let the tea brew for about 2 minutes. You may adjust the time for what suits your palate best. DO NOT stir, shake or mix the tea while brewing.

4 - Serve and Enjoy!

Pour small amounts of tea into each cup at a time, and go around until the very last drop is poured. Japanese firmly believe that the last drop of tea determines its taste as a whole!

You can add hot water again to the teapot for a second, or even a third brewing.

+++ About Water Quality

If your tap water tastes bad, then so probably will your tea, regardless of its quality!

You should use fresh, good quality water without a lot of minerals (but not distilled water) to get the best flavor out of your tea. If using tap water, let it run cold for at least 10 seconds before using it.

+++ Using a Non-reactive Kettle

Japanese green teas (and indeed all teas,) should be prepared in kettles made from a material that is as non-reactive as possible. The material your kettle is made of can chemically react with water, and cause contamination.

Aluminum kettles should definitely to be avoided. Aluminum is a reactive material which has been proven to cause toxic contamination. Glass, ceramic, stainless steel, enamel, marble or cast iron are excellent non-reactive, non-toxic materials.

About 'Kamairi' Teas

Kamairi teas account for only about 2% of Japanese tea production, due to unusually high care required in its production process. Fresh tea leaves are immediately parched after harvesting for 10 minutes at 300 degrees C, by a process called "Iriha-ki", to minimize and stop fermentation. Parched leaves are rolled and dried in a four step, intensely manual process. This time-tested Japanese technique yields a unique pan-parched fragrance, with a remarkably complex and rich taste.
