INGREDIENTS—Shade-grown Japanese green tea
HOW TO BREW
Add 1 TBSP tea, cover with 2 oz cold water, steep 5 min. Enjoy this first infusion as an umami blast to the tastebuds. Then Add 10 oz hot (130º) water, and steep for 30 seconds . Enjoy right away. Re-steep these leaves 2-5 more times and look for an increase in astringency and a decrease in umami flavor.
