What can you tell me about Japanese tea?

Let a boiling water cool - for a tasty cup of tea

In order to pour a tasty cup of tea, you should let a boiling water cool. If you pour boiling water into a teapot directly, the temperature will be too high. Pour boiling water into a teacup first. Especially for high quality sencha and gyokuro, it is important to use a low temperature water (40-50 C) in order to control astringency. Taste of tea would be very different depending on how you pour them. Therefore, if you can serve a tasty cup of tea, that would call for some good attention! My mother taught me how to make a good one when I was young. :-)
