How to make tea

Hand-made green tea①

The recipe

①Wash the picked leaves with running water and drain it.

②Put the leaves into a steamer and steam them for 30 seconds and stir them well.
 Then, steam for 30 seconds again.

 ※If the stem can be bent without snapping off, that is the sign you steamed well enough.
 ※Let the steamed leaves cool down.


③Put a pan on low heat and stir-fry the leaves until any excess water are gone.
(About 10-15 minutes)
 ※Do not use oil.
 ※Now, you need to get focused. The Umami flavor makes the leaves stick to the pan.
  Try to flip the leaves in a pan well.
④When the leaves begin to turn to black,
 take them out on a plate and remove the stem.

 ※The stem contains a lot of water. Therefore,
  if the stem and leaves are dried together, the leaves will be burned easily.

⑤Put the pan on low heat again and flip it well not to be burned until any excess water are gone.
 ※From now, keep shaking the pan to avoid getting the leaves burned.

⑥After 2-3 minutes, take the leaves out on a plate and rub them to small pieces by hands.
 ※Dried leaves can be small pieces. Moist leaves are soft.
 ※Repeat the processes ⑤~⑥. (10-15 minutes)
 ※Please be careful not to burn yourself.

⑦Finished

The recipe

①Put the picked leaves into a big strainer.

②If you picked a big strainer full of tea leaves, divide up into 3 times for tea making.
If you make a lot of tea at once, it will take longer to dry.


③Make tea soon after picking.First, wash the leaves lightly.

④Drain the leaves properly and put them on a heat-resistant dish,
 and then microwave them for 2 minutes.

 By doing so, the leaves become steamed.


⑤Steamed leaves are very hot.
 Please be careful with burns and rub the leaves strongly.

 Rubbing the leaves on a chopping board might be an easier way.
 Rub and squeeze the leaves for 2-3 minutes to get rid of any excess water.

⑥Put the leaves in a microwave again and warm them for 1 minute.
 From now, let them dry.


⑦Repeat the step ④ and ⑤ rubbing and drying procedures 5 or 6 times.
 The smell of the first picked tea of the year breathes.

⑧The leaves are getting less watery and becoming crispy.
 When the water is gone completely, they are complete.


⑨Completed tea leaves,
 in case, the leaves are not dry completely after attempts through a microwave,
 put a pan on low heat and then fry the leaves to dry gently.

⑩Once the leaves are complete, let’s make tea to drink.
