Tea Story

Gyokuro is the most sought after and luxurious type of green tea from Japan.
This Gyokuro come from Ise Bay in Mie Prefecture which has 800 years of history for producing high quality tea.
Gyokuro is made from shade-grown tea leaves also used to make matcha. Tea bushes are covered up to 3 weeks before harvest to prevent direct sunlight. This slows down growth, and causes the production of amino acids and theanine, giving rise to a sweet flavour, "mild in taste" and a "greenish in colour infusion”.

Great care is taken when preparing this tea to specific requirements. As guidance the twice the weight in dry tea leaves for a given quantity of water (e.g. 6 to 10 grams for 180 ml); cooler brewing temperatures (in the range of 50ºC-60ºC instead of 65ºC-75ºC for sencha);a longer steeping duration, at least for the first infusion (90 second instead of 1 minute for sencha). Due to its high quality, the thick tea leaves maintain their pleasant flavour for up to 4-5 servings.

Since Gyokuro steeps at such a mild temperature, it is recommend pre-heating both the pot and cup to maintain the warmth of the tea as one drinks it. It is normally consumed very slowly to savor its distinctive flavour.
