Etzai (Mint Tea)


  • 1½ Tablespoons green tea
  • Boiling water
  • 3 Tablespoons sugar, or to taste
  • Handful of fresh mint leaves


  1. Put the tea in a teapot.
  2. Pour in a cupful of boiling water, then immediately pour it out again. This is to wash the leaves.
  3. Add the sugar to taste, then the mint leaves.
  4. Pour in boiling water 12 inches away from the top (this oxygenates the tea) and stir well. Be extremely careful not to splash the boiling water.
  5. Serve the tea very hot, again pouring it from a height of about 12 inches.
