To go further:
In order for this tea to develop its full aromatic complexity, multiple infusions should be performed in a Kyusu or a Shiboridashi. It is also possible to make cold brew tea by replacing the water with ice cubes : the infusion is finished when the ice cubes have completely melted, and you will obtain a concentrated, intense liqueur that is rare as jade dew..
