going to use a tea spoon of these pearls and that is going to come out to about roughly
ten or twelve pearls. So I am going to put that into my teapot. Green tea should be steeped
at a temperature of about one hundred and eighty-five degrees which is sub-boiling.
And again I have my water that I have boiled and allowed to cool to the optimal temperature.
So I am going to fill up my teapot with that. Again you can use a hot water dispenser or
a thermometer to attain perfectly accurate and consistent temperatures. I am going to
set my timer for three minutes and hit start. And that is going to beep an alarm in three
minutes and let us know. Again, with timing you can experiment depending on the specific
tea you are brewing, but for green tea a general rule is two to three minutes. We are doing
