Hario Tea Server Simply Preparation Method

What you'll need

Brew time

1 - 2 minutes (depending on the tea and your personal taste). You can re-steep the tea leaves for at least 2-3 more times, so don't discard the leaves right after the first infusion.

Brew loose leaf tea

There is nothing better than a homemade cup of tea. Depending on the type of leaf used, our suggested the steeping time can vary. Though, don't be shy to experiment. Try and see what works for your palate.

In this guide we are using Canyon Green, which has a twisted leaf shape. Twisted leaf tea steeps faster than tightly rolled ones, so the brewing time should be closer to 1 minute instead of 2. With the ratio we provided (6 grams of tea and 8oz of water), we suggest 3 steepings using the same tea leaves, though feel free adjust pending on your taste. We recommend completing all your steepings within the day.


Step 1 

Weigh out 6 grams of tea.

Step 2

Use hot water (195, 200 or 212 degree F) to rinse your Hario Tea Server Simply. This is the same temperature you will use to brew the tea. Heating your Hario Tea Server to your intended brewing temperature will allow more precise brewing temperature. Please refer to individual tea pages for suggested brewing temperature by tea.

Step 3

Pour out the water. Add the loose leaf tea to your tea pot.

Step 4

Add hot water to your tea. Generically, the water should be lower (~195 degrees F) for twisted tea leaves and higher (~212 degrees F) for tightly rolled tea leaves. Please refer to individual tea pages for suggested brewing temperature by tea.

Step 5

Make sure the tea leaves are wet evenly, gently swirl your tea pot if necessary.

Step 6

Let the tea brew for 1 minute. For tightly rolled tea leaves we prefer a longer steeping time of 2 minutes.

Step 7

Hario tea server simply has a built-in mesh, making it very easy to strain.

When the steeping time is up, pour the tea into a pitcher or a mug. Make sure all the liquid is drained from the teapot. That way the tea doesn't over brew and become bitter when you go back for subsequent steepings. To make sure no small tea residue in your brew, consider using a fine mesh tea strainer.

Pour your tea and enjoy!

Step 9

Re-Steep the tea as many times as you fancy. We recommend three in total for this tea to water ratio. To re-steep, simply add more water. The second steep's suggested brewing time is the same as the first and the third should be 1-2 minutes longer.
