Shaded Japanese green tea picked in early April from Okumidori cultivar bushes, in the very south of Kyushu island, Kagoshima region. Dark green leaves are shaped into symmetric needles with a metallic shine. Blue-green in a cup with a delicious harmonically balanced  and soft creamy flavor and pleasant fruity sweetness in the aftertaste.

How to prepare Gyokuro

Use 5 grams of tea leaves for 0.5 litre of boiling water cooled to 65-70 °C, steep for 60 seconds. Infuse the second infusion for 30 seconds and the third for 60 seconds. Feel free to experiment with steeping time, water temperature, and the amount of tea leaves. You can also read our articles on tea preparation and water quality. These tea leaves are also suitable for Asian-style preparation, which includes multiple infusions: you steep 5 grams of tea leaves per 150 ml of water that has boiled and cooled to 55–60 ᵒC for 20 seconds, and in the following three infusions, you steep the leaves for 30, 40, and 50 seconds, respectively. You can also try steeping the leaves in lukewarm water at 37 ᵒC for 7 minutes, or in slowly melting ice.
