How to make tea for more than one person
using the five-person teaset

Step 1: Pour 3/4 of a pot of hot water into teapot to warm the pot. Pour same hot water from teapot into each teacup being used. (Discard water later)
Step 2: Pour hot water separately into lipped bowl. Cool down water. Put approximately one teaspoon or 2g to 3g of tea per person into teapot. Pour cooled water from lipped bowl into teapot and gently twirl. Discard initial tea water into second bowl immediately.
Step 3: Refill lipped bowl with hot water and cool it down to proper temperature -- refer to table. Pour cooled water from lipped bowl into teapot w/tea leaves inside and gently twirl three times. Immediately discard water from each teacup.
Step 4: Pour tea from teapot into lipped bowl and begin serving (tea should be served from lipped bowl).
Step 5: Pour tea alternately between cups -- i.e., each cup should be filled within three pours. (This will ensure same smooth taste.)
Step 6: Once the teacups are full, using your right hand, place coaster one at a time under each cup. The host should gently glide each cup to the respective guest and drink the cup that is closest to him/her on the right.
Step 7: Take in the fragrance of the tea while drinking slowly.
Step 8: Repeat Steps 3 through 7 four more times. Steeping time should vary: steeping time for second cup should be 30 seconds, third cup should be one minute, fourth and fifth cups should be one and a half minutes each.
