Gyokuro Tea is considered to be the highest grade of Japanese tea, and is actually put into a category of itself, not to be judged in contests along with other Japanese teas. The name Gyokuro means “Jewel dew”, and is not only farmed differently than Sencha, but prepared and served differently than other Japanese teas.
Gyokuro Tea for every day Drinking
Our Superior Gyokuro is a great tea for every day drinking. It is also great as an introductory Gyokuro for those just discovering Japanese tea, and for those who want to see if Gyokuro and Sencha are really that different. Light body, yet has the full mellowness of Gyokuro, no hint of grassiness associated with Sencha, and a nice after note of sweetness that should bring a smile to your lips.
Amount: 100g (3.52oz)
Container: Matabay Bag
Do not brew or prepare the same as regular Sencha. Water should be no hotter than 60℃ (140ºF), brew time is 120 to 150 seconds, and you should only use 20 to 25ml of water per serving. Consume in small sips. Use 10g for serving 3 cups (20ml x 3), or 4 to 5grams, if just making one. For second and third infusions, use hotter water, and a shorter (30 to 40 seconds) brew time.
