One Note concerning the tea recipes video
- In this video, the green tea powder is scooped directly from the Natsume (the green tea powder “case”). Please note that the tea was sifted into the Natsume, thus it appears as if we are skipping a step. If you do not have your tea pre “sifted”, it is highly recommended that you sift the tea into the bowl with a fine mesh sifter.
