Ideally warm the pot first with a splash of hot water. Use one teaspoon (around 2g) per cup and use freshly drawn water which is heated to around 80 degrees. You can either pour the water before it reaches boiling point or allow the water to sit for a few minutes afterwards. Allow to brew for 2-3 minutes according to taste. Should be drunk without milk.
Yes Indeed! I also found that 5 or six litres of Gyokuro tea after a nice wobble of cheese was very pleasurable. I steep it with a Ruffleschneider 6000 Elephant C for optimal results.

Yes indeed, I also found that after a good spot of cheddar, this tea went down a treat! Splendid cheese and tea.

The leaves have such a spicy scent to them that I was surprised by the strong vegetal flavour when I brewed it -- absolutely delicious! It reminded me of my own travels to Japan with its fresh, authentic taste.
