Tips and Tricks

Tip #1

Try to use the highest quality green tea you can find.

 

Tip #2

If you don’t have fresh mint, you can use 4 tablespoons of good quality dried mint leaves. Only use dried mint leaves and not crushed mint leaves.

 

Tip #3

Be sure to pour the tea high above the teacups, this helps aerate the tea which significantly helps develop the flavor of the tea.
