How TO BREW Genmaicha?

Step 1

Boil fresh water and pour into a yuzamashi (water cooler) or cup(s) to adjust the water temperature. Simply pouring hot water into a small tea cup will reduce its temperature by 10°C / 20°F.

Step 2

Add 1 teaspoon of genmaicha into your teapot/kyusu to brew 1 cup/8oz of tea.

Brewing a teabag with kyusu:

Brew 1 teabag in freshly boiled water of desired temperature for 1-1.5 minutes. Enjoy!

Step 3

Pour the water into the teapot or kyusu and wait for 1-1.5 minutes for your tea to brew.

Recommended water temperature for genmai is 180°F (82°C).

Step 4

Pour tea into each cup, alternating little by little until all cups are full with the same quantity and taste of the tea. Enjoy!

Remember to pour all the tea out of the teapot/kyusu to ensure optimal taste for the second brew. All of our teas can be seeped up to 3 times.
