As far as I understand, when you brew Japanese green tea for you and your guests, the following procedure is ok for the first brew:
1. Put tea in the Kyusu.
2. Pour boiling water into the cups.
3. Pour water from the cups into the Kyusu.
4. Pour tea back into the cups.
5. Serve the teacups to the guests and yourself.
My question is: What about the second brewing? Do I cool the water by pouring it into the now dirty cups? Do I clean/rinse the cups first? What is a good procedure for the second brew?
If you like to invite guests over for tea, I would be very interested in hearing your procedure of serving your guests. Please share
