Hey Ricky,

The recommended amount of tea for 8 oz of Gyokuro is about 2-3 teaspoons, and using water 120F-150F. However, as with any tea, that’s just a guidline, feel free to experiment, as you did!

Ricky

Thanks for the steeping instructions. I’ll keep it in mind when I make the remaining tea leaves.

140F is a good temperature for Gyokuro with the leaf to water ratio that Harney & Sons provided in their comment. I usually steep Gyokuro for about 30-45 seconds and get about 4 infusions out of it… depending on the quality of the leaf. Have fun experimenting and discovering what you prefer.
