I picked up a tin of this when I put in my Steepster Select indie sampler order. This is only the second Gyokuro I’ve ever had, so I don’t have much within the category to compare it to. That said, the smell of both dry and wet leaves is intoxicating, right up there with freshly-harvested Dragonwell. I used the lowest setting on my UtiliTEA kettle to make it, but I see a lot of tinkering with temps and steep times to do.
Gyokuro Select (Grower's Series)
Our Grower’s Gyokuro is made with the finest tea leaves. Covered from the sun for weeks to preserve its richness, this tea is the perfect afternoon treat.
A rich, full bodied cup, with a smooth finish.
For an exquisite cup, we recommend brewing a tablespoon of leaves in a cup (8 oz or less) ofwarm water (140 to 160F). Steep for 2 to 3 minutes, and enjoy.
