Consider also cold steeping or ice steeping (see Steeping Techniques).

1st steeping

Tea: 5 grams. Time: 2 minutes. Water: 50˚C/122˚F, 100 ml.

The low temperature allows you to enjoy the umami flavors first.

2nd steeping

Tea: same. Time: 10-20 seconds. Water: 90˚C/194˚F, 200 ml.

The higher temperature brings out the more astringent flavors.

3rd steeping

Increase time to 30-60 seconds or to desired strength.
