Organic Gyokuro is one of the rarest teas in the world. Aiya has exclusive experience working with Japanese farmers to achieve this high-level of Gyokuro which meets international organic standards. Fresh shade grown leaves are carefully handpicked to maximize Gyokuro’s natural sweetness.
To enjoy the natural sweetness of Gyokuro, use cooler water and steep it longer. Bring the water to a boil and allow it to cool to 50°C/122°F. Steep 1 heaping teaspoon (3g) of Organic Gyokuro for 3 minutes in 120ml/4 oz of hot water. With this tea, one can pour more hot water over the tea leaves and enjoy another cup.
