For best flavor, place 7 grams of tea leaves in a 5 ounce gaiwan. Bring spring or freshy drawn filtered water to a boil. Fill your gaiwan to the top and let the leaves steep for 10-20 seconds. Set the strainer on top of the decanter and pour the tea out of the gaiwan with the lid slightly askew, without allowing the tea leaves to escape. Serve into small cups and repeat this process up to 4-5 times and notice how the tea leaves change in flavor over each infusion.
For Western brewing, bring spring or freshley drawn filtered water to a boil. Steep 2 rounded teaspoons (2 grams) per 8-10 ounces of water for 5 minutes.
