Asked and Answered Vol. 5:
Green Tea Brewed with Boiling Water

One of the questions we are often asked is, "Is it wrong to brew green tea with boiling water?" Some may say that it is a shame to use very hot water with Japanese green tea. However, if you follow our recommendations, brewing with piping hot water can bring out a different refreshing and aromatic character from the same leaves that we normally brew with lower temperatures. Make sure to reduce the brewing time to avoid bringing out a strong flavor from the leaves.
