i am re-doing this tea and its tasting note! i now recommend, i now bump higher in rating. B plus this time!

Morgana (THANK YOU!!!) pointed out that Gyokuro usually wants a lower temp and longer steep time than the Den’s recommended. so instead of 60 sec. at 180 deg, i tried 120 sec. at approx 140 deg. made a huge difference! i think the veggies finally got cooked! or something. the seaweed was much less overpowering, and the vegetal green (fresh, bright green!) was enhanced, brought forth, materialized.

definitely like it better this way. Tea communities ROCK!!

Preparation
140 °F / 60 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 6 OZ / 177 ML
