First, water is poured into the cup, not into the pot, so you get the exact amount of water. Because if there is too much water in the pot with tea leaves inside, the leaves will absorb too much water and will loses its flavor .
Tips :
Plese poured  not so hot water for Sencha and Fukamushicha. ( Therefore, let sit the water  a little in the cup until it reaches the desired temperature. )
In the other hand Genmaicha and Hojicha need hot water.

Close the lid after pouring the water into the pot.

Tips :
For Sencha let sit it 10 to 30 seconds (according to the taste), to draw the taste.
Pour the tea immediately for Fukamushicha , Genmaicha and Hojicha.

Always pour the tea down to the last drop.
Tips :
For several cups of tea , we should pour some tea in each cup back and forthand / don't do it in one go for each cup (as pictured above), so that we have  the same color, consistency and amount of tea  in every cup.

Finally, one should remove the lid , so you can avoid the leaves to be absorb  too much by the steam and the heat, so you can enjoy the taste of the tea longer. 

Notes :
Sencha : japanese green tea made by steam fixing process.

Fukamushicha : a long-steamed green tea of the Sencha variety which, in the processing of the leaves, has been steamed two times longer than usual Sencha, giving it a deeper color and producing a fuller flavor in the beverage.

Hojicha : a Japanese green tea that is distinguished from others because it is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal. The roasting replaces the vegetative tones of standard green tea with a toasty, slightly caramel-like flavour.

Genmaicha : the Japanese name for green tea combined with roasted brown rice. It is sometimes referred to colloquially as “popcorn tea”. Its flavor is mild and combines the fresh grassy flavor of green tea with the aroma of the roasted rice.
