How Do You Brew Tea?
When you brew tea you start with water and heat it up in a tea kettle or tea pot.
Put the tea bag or 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea in a one cup mug or glass. Pour the boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep for desired strength.
Different tea takes different times to steep to extract everything from the leaves in the tea mixture. Like green tea takes only a minute or two, and others like passion tea takes up to 5 minutes.
Another brewing method is sun tea. The way you brew that is you fill a container with water and put as many tea bags as desired.
Leave it out in the sun on a hot summer day and the heat from the sun rays will heat the water up enough that the tea will be extracted. Sun tea takes the longest to brew like a couple hours because it takes a while for the sun to heat the water up. From there you can heat it up, but mainly it’s poured over ice and can be drunk throughout the day.

Ceremonial Steps
- Before a Japanese tea ceremony begins, guests may stay in a waiting room until the host is ready for them. 
- The guests will walk across roji, Japanese for dewy ground, symbolically ridding themselves of the dust of the world in preparation for the ceremony.
- Then, the guests will wash their hands and mouths from water in a stone basin (tsukubai in Japanese) as a last purifying step


- The host greets each guest with a silent bow.

- The Japanese tea ceremony steps begin with cleaning and preparation of the tea serving utensils.

- Next, the host prepares the tea by adding three scoops of matcha.

- Hot water is ladled into bowl and whisked into a thin paste. More water is added as needed to create a soup-like tea.

The host presents the prepared tea bowl to one of the guests and they exchange bows.

  This first guest admires the bowl then rotates it before taking a drink. 

The guest wipes the rim of the tea bowl then offers it to the next guest who repeats these movements.

 After all the guests have taken a drink of tea, the bowl is rinsed clean by the host.  The host will also rinse and clean the tea whisk and scoop again. 
  The host gathers the utensils and the guests exit with a bow completing the ceremony.
