For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Tokoname teapot.

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

I've been drinking Rishi jasmine green for years. I tried this Bancha for something different and loved it! Loved the roasted flavor. Great tea.

I don't think you'd want to let this brew too long. The bitterness is certainly in the leaves. You can smell it, but if you follow the timings suggested on the bag I think it's just fine. Clear-tasting umami flavour with a hint of something smoky alongside which comes from the smell I think. Looking forward to a subsequent brewing of these same tea leaves. I think the flavour might be even more interesting.
