For those who already tried these teas, can you please give me some brewing parameters, just to have a starting point. thanks
Not sure what apparatus you have or do not have. I use a scale to weigh the leaves, and we typically discuss ratio of leaf to water ... a common example is 1 gram leaf per 1 ounce water, a 1:1 ratio. Some like it lighter, 0.75:1. You will figure your own tastes out as you go. I usually go with 1:1, but you can start lighter.
Temp, cool, 155* in a preheated pot. 45-60 seconds for YM and 90ish for Kabusecha.
Good for multiple steeps!
