How to prepare:
- put enough pearls to cover the bottom of the cup with a single layer;
- start heating about 2 to 3 cups of fresh, filtered water until you get Shrimp Eyes (140-160F). Shrimp eyes are tiny, pinhead sized bubbles on the bottom of pan. It is the point where you first start seeing bubbles in the water. This mean that the water is around 160 degrees, making it perfect for this really delicate green tea. When these tiny bubbles totally cover the bottom of the pan, pour the water into the Gaiwan;
- cover and wait about a minute until the pearls start opening, then watch as they settle, occasionally gently stirring the liquid but not open the cover;
- in 2-3 minutes the tea is ready.
