Our standard recipe for brewing loose-leaf gyokuro. Brew a cup when you feel you need a change of pace.
Tekiro - 50g
Tekiro is a versatile gyokuro with a light body and a smooth character. Enjoy during a meal and throughout the day.
Tekiro’s light body and smooth character make it a good tea for drinking throughout the day. When brewed at the standard 140°F, it has just enough sweetness and richness to be satisfying at mellow, slow tea sessions.
For a different experience altogether, brew with hot water for just 30 seconds, just like a bancha tea. Boiling water brings out a wonderful misty fragrance and a crisp taste from Tekiro. This method is good for enjoying during or after a meal, or for when you want a mug of tea to sip while reading a book.
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.
Prepare large amounts of tea with your everyday kyusu.
