Our standard recipe for brewing loose-leaf gyokuro. Brew a cup when you feel you need a change of pace.
A boiling-hot brew brings out a vivid fragrance from gyokuro leaves. In the cup, this recipe has more a little crisp, refreshing astringency, on top of gyokuro's dew-like sweetness.
For a fast, fragrant pitcher of iced tea, brew a strong batch of gyokuro using boiling hot water, and then pour over ice, diluting its strength and balancing its flavor.
Cold brewing brings out the most sweetness and umami from the leaves.
Prepare large amounts of tea with your everyday kyusu.
