  3. Add hot water a second time, at the correct temperature
  4. Depending on the type of tea leaves, the amount of water used also varies
  5. Proper brewing time is essential
  6. Warm tea cups with hot water
  7. Never fill up a cup at a time. Arrange the cups in a circle and pour the brew out in a continuous circular motion.
