As an everyday tea, Genmaicha needs a higher water temperature than other greens, use water 85 to 90 degrees - or just before boiling. Prepare the tea in a small pot, using a teaspoon (7-8gms) of tea per 200ml water. Pour the water over the leaf and allow it to infuse for 1-1 and a half minutes. Pour the tea into small hand-less cups and enjoy. For a second infusion, infuse it a little longer, 2 minutes with water at 90 degrees. The infusion should be pale yellow in colour, with a grassy, nutty aroma and sweet taste.
