This green tea should be prepared extremely carefully. If you use water that is too hot, almost no flavors are released.

- Before you brew the tea, you should enjoy its smell. The best way to do this is to put the dry tea leaves in a hot pot or mug. This allows the odorous substances to develop optimally.
- Use enough tea when preparing it. On a small jug of about. 100-150ml you should use about 3-4 teaspoons of tea.
- Do not let the tea steep longer than 20 seconds for the first infusion. If the tea brews longer, it becomes a bit bitter.
- You can pour the tea 3-4 times. After that, a significantly longer brewing time is necessary to obtain an intense taste.
