How to brew Japanese Tea

How to brew Japanese Tea

We specially prepare all kinds of  Japanese tea for you, so that you can enjoy the taste of tea when you admire the beauty of sakura.

In Japan, 99.9 percent of the tea produced is green. All of the famous Japanese teas, such as sencha, gyokuro and hōji-cha, are green teas.
“Green tea” means tea that has not been fermented (which is a term that actually refers to oxidation).

What people in the West call “black tea” is actually fermented (oxidized) tea; Oolong tea is semi-fermented tea.

日本生产的茶类中,99.9%是绿茶。特别有名的比如:煎茶、玉露、烘焙茶等都属于绿茶。所谓「绿茶」,就是不经过发酵的茶(发酵是指氧化过程)。西洋的所谓红茶是指发酵茶(经过氧化的茶),乌龙茶是半发酵茶。

Here are some of the Japanese tea brewing methods.

Sencha is the most widespread kind of Japanese green tea, accounting for nearly 70 percent of the tea produced in Japan.

Quantity of loose tea leaves: 3 g / 1 tsp per person

(If you are making tea for just one person, 4-5 g / 1 1/2 tsp are needed.) Quantity of water: 70-80 ml / 1/4-1/3 cup per person

Water temperature: 70°C / 158°F for the first steeping (+80°C / 176°F for the second steeping)

Steeping time: For the first steeping, 30 seconds-1 1/2 minutes (the finer and more broken the leaves, the shorter the steeping time); for the second steeping, serve immediately.

Small cups containing around 100 ml (slightly less than 1/2 cup) are handy for lowering the temperature of the water (simply pour hot water into them in order to reduce its temperature 10°C / 20°F) and for measuring the amount of water needed per person.

煎茶 
日本煎茶占据了国内产量的70%。几乎全国都有栽培。不管是家庭用的实惠装还是高级品,煎茶被赋予了各种各样的形态。

请准备每人份的茶叶大约2~3克(一茶勺的量)。(如果只准备一人份的茶时,可按照一茶勺半的用量)。每份茶需要热水70~80ml。第一次的沏茶水温需要70℃,第二次需要80℃/176℉的热水。
浸泡时间:30秒~1分30秒(细叶茶的浸泡时间要短)。第2泡的时候不需要浸泡时间。

Gyokuro

Quantity of loose tea leaves: 3-4 g / 1-1 1/2 tsp per person

Quantity of water: 20-30 ml / 1-2 tbsp per person

Water temperature: 50°C / 120°F for the first steeping (+10°C / 20°F each subsequent steeping)

Steeping time: For the first steeping, 1-1 1/2 minutes; for the second steeping, 1 minute; for the third steeping, 2 minutes.

玉露
玉露作为高级茶,栽培方法极其特殊,因此真正的玉露价格是很昂贵的。并且,它的冲泡方法也很独特,而且鲜为人知。

准备茶叶每人3到4克(1/2茶匙即半勺的量)。热水是每人20〜30毫升。第一泡为50℃热水(第二泡时温度要+ 10℃)。
泡茶时间:第一泡为 1分钟到1分30秒。 第二泡为1分钟,第三泡为2分钟。

 Hôji-cha,Genmai-cha,Ban-cha

Quantity of loose tea leaves: 3 g / 1 tsp per person

Quantity of water: 130 ml / 1/2 cup per person

Water temperature: 95-100°C / 203-212°F

Steeping time: 30 seconds

One last thing: you do not need to watch your thermometer, waiting for the water to drop down to the desired temperature. When you pour water from one recipient to another, it generally drops 8°C / 15°F. By waiting a few seconds each time, you can count on a drop of around 10°C / 20°F. 

玄米茶 番茶
茶叶3克 /人。热水约130毫升/人。
水温95〜100℃。
最佳泡茶时间为:30秒。
