To reach ideal temperature, just let boiling water rest and cool down for around 3-4 minutes. Avoid use water has been boiled for many times, as this reduces the level of oxygen in the water and effects the taste of the tea.
Use hot water to warm the cup/ gaiwan/ tea pot first, then put in tea. Pour in water just enough to cover the tea, let the dry tea fully soak the water and slightly shake the cup/ gaiwan/ tea pot for 30 seconds, then pour in water to the full capacity of the vessel.
