Brewing Suggestions: The tea leaves are tightly compact and have to be pried or broken off the cake or cake portion. They have very fine tools for this or you can use your fingers in a pinch. It may take a try or two to get used to manipulating tea like this.
For gaiwan brewing, we recommend no more than 30-45 seconds for your first brew if you’re using 1-2 tablespoons (3-4 grams). You can go up in time about 15 seconds every brew. You can get about 6-9 solid brews for each session. If you’re at an office or you would rather use a teapot or french press, we recommend the same 1-2 tablespoons (3-4 grams) but since you’re using proportionally more water leave the first brew for at least 60-90 seconds and then go up in 15 second increments from there. You can get at least 3-4 full pots of tea for each session.
Experiment and let us know how you liked it best!
