Our standard recipe for brewing loose-leaf gyokuro. Brew a cup when you feel you need a change of pace.
Ippoen - 50g
Ippoen is a tea ripe with luscious, clear, and elegant umami. Its finish is long and beautiful.
Rich in umami, smooth in texture, and virtually void of astringency, Ippoen is a top-class gyokuro that is a favorite among our patrons. We recommend enjoying Ippoen’s full-bodied, but elegant character slowly at contemplative tea sessions. We also recommend this tea 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.
