at first i didnt believe, i brew it like the sencha, in the end not nice.
must 敢敢 add the tea leaves to enjoy it.
Yeah. On their website

The key to preparing Japanese green tea properly in a kyusu teapot is the combination of three things - the amount of tea leaves, water temperature, and brewing time. Firstly, the most fundamental aspect is the amount of tea leaves used. It is important to note that the proper amount differs depending on where the leaves were grown and the tea dealer. The proper amount that Ippodo specifies for bringing out the taste that Ippodo wants its customers to enjoy is 10 grams.
In our experience, in the majority of cases where people say that the tea tastes weak or flavorless, less than the proper amount of tea leaves has been used. When people see 10 grams of tea leaves in a kyusu teapot, many are surprised and think it is too much.
