80
drank Gyokuro by Adagio Teas
55 tasting notes

I brewed this at a slightly lower temp (a recommendation from Twitter) – 160 degrees – and I saw a slightly milder taste than the bitter edge I got at 180d. Grassy is a def, vegatal with a slight sweet taste. Full, grassy scent. The second steep was milder still.

This is a great pick-me-up when I need to focus and keep getting distracted.

160 is the temp recommendation I have as well. 2tsp in 4oz water for 2 min. Glad you got a better cuppa:)

It made such a difference!

I found 165-170 to be fine. 180 definitely brought out some bitterness.

I found that too – I’m glad I have Adagio’s tea kettle – the one where I can change my temp settings.
