DESCRIPTION

Gyokuro is one of the highest forms of organic Japanese whole leaf green tea. We are proud to offer Gyokuro green tea from a certified Organic production that comes from Aichi Prefecture. Like the tea bushes for matcha, for Gyokuro the tea bushes are grown under intense shade for 2-3 weeks before the plucking of leaves.

DRY LEAF: Long needle like, vivid green leaves with a rich sweet smell.

WET LEAVES: Grassy green with a savory nose.

CUP: Light green liquor. Slightly grassy, salty, creamy with a mild sweetness. Rich umami.

STEEPING TIPS:

   1  heaping tsp to 4oz water

   124 F (We recommend using lukewarm water and longer steeping time. This brings out the sweetness better in the tea.) For second steep use 140F.

   3 mins, second steep 3 mins

While the above is the manufacturer's recommended way to steep this tea, you can also use 3 gm of tea to 8 oz of cup and steep it for 2 mins (first steep), 3 mins (second steep) using water at 176F.
