Our standard recipe for brewing loose-leaf gyokuro. Brew a cup when you feel you need a change of pace.
Tenka-ichi - 50g
Tenka-ichi is the gyokuro with the most decadent, lush character in our selection.
Tenka-ichi means “the best under the heavens.” True to its name, this gyokuro represents the pinnacle of luscious umami in our selection. We produce this blend from the top gyokuro farms in the Kyoto area. Its taste is smooth and robust, its aroma sings, and its aftertaste lingers with layers of complexity. We recommend enjoying this remarkable tea slowly at contemplative tea sessions. We also recommend Tenka-ichi as cold brew, to taste the full potential of its deep umami and sweetness.
Ways to Prepare
Cold brewing brings out the most sweetness and umami from the leaves.
