Beware of the steep time. Teavana’s sticker said 2 minutes when it’s really 30-45 seconds. They didn’t tell me that when I purchased it. However, I’d go with a steep time of around 1 minute and a temperature closer to 180 degrees.
The Gyokuro Imperial green tea has a very slight sweet taste to it with a grassy kick at the end. It smells like freshly cut grass. It’s a good green tea. Seems to be a very delicate tea. Just a slight variation in the water temperature or time really makes a difference.
