Japanese green teas have by far the most delicate, sensitive leaves and are some of the most challenging (and rewarding) teas to brew. However, larger leaf Bancha as well as roasted teas like Houjicha and Kukicha can use slightly higher temperature water and longer steeping times. We recommend using water at 150 to 170 F and steeping one teaspoon of leaf per 8 ounce cup for 2 to 3 minutes. This method provides 2 to 3 satisfying infusions.

Japanese green teas can be enjoyed in a variety of brewing styles but are traditionally steeped in a Kyusu (a small, side-handle pot).
