Brewing suggestions. Brew tea with hot water (75-80°С) in a porcelain gaiwan or in glass teaware. The proportion is 6-7 g per 100 ml. The first infusion should last for 8-10 seconds. After that make short infusions (just for a second), increasing the infusion time gradually. You can repeat this brewing method up to 6-7 times.
This is an excellent green tea with mild, sweet flavour and harmonic, refreshing, light tonic effect.
