Ways to Prepare
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.
