Never prepare green tea with boiling hot water.

  • Let the water come to a rolling boil
  • Let the water cool from boiling for 3 – 6 minutes
    • Rule of Thumb:  The higher quality the tea, the more cool down time is required.
  • Steep 1-1½ minutes
    • Never steep longer than 2 minutes.
  • Drink clear.
