I haven’t had this particular gyokuro before. I used my usual method for brewing gyokuro – two teaspoons of leaves steeped for one and a half minutes in water at 55C – but it didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped. Quite good, rich and flavoursome as gyokuro should be, but a little more astringent than I like. I left the second steeping for only one minute but it was significantly more astringent than the first. I’ll have another try at getting this one right before deciding to go back to my usual organic gyokuro from teas.com.au.
