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.
