Japanese green tea

In Japan, tea drinking is an art and a philosophy.

4 tsp Japanese green tea (Bancha or Sencha)
1 l-lime or filtered water

Step 1
Preheat a heavy pot as possible. Pour the tea leaves. Boil the water and allow to cook briefly bubbling, then let cool 10-15 minutes at 65-70 °. Pour over the tea leaves and let stand for 1-2 minutes. When the leaves have fallen to the bottom of the pot, spread the tea into teacups.

Step 2
Pour the tea leaves in the pot with the remaining water, then let stand for about 5 minutes, then fill the cups.
