Ingredients: Tea Leaves (Shade Grown)
Net Weight: 0.5 lbs (227g)
Package: Large Foil Bag

Gyokuro is a shaded green tea and considered one of the finest green teas in Japan. Infusion produces a light green color and a deep, complex flavor. Gyokuro has a unique sweetness since shade allows the tea to retain a high Theanine content.

Use 1 tablespoon (5g) for 6 oz of water (3 servings). We recommend steeping with 120F – 140F water for 3 – 4 minutes. Yields approximately 135 servings/package.

This is a very typical green tea. Smelling it is very buttery and then a hint of grassiness. The butteriness is missing almost completely from the tea when drinking and is instead replaced with a slight bitterness at the end. The leaves are a very pretty blue-green color and are smaller than most other leaves, brewing up like spinach. The packaging suggested 140 degrees for steeping but I think this would have done better at either a lower temperature or lower steeping time since it did have a tad of bitterness.
