Sipdown no. 32 of 2017 (no. 313 total). A sample.

Well, I screwed this up again, though it wasn’t for lack of trying.

This time I used enough leaf, and had the right temperature for the water, but it all fell apart with the water to tea ratio.

I read that you’re supposed to steep gyokuro in a pot, until the point where the leaves unfurl (about 2 minutes). I found a pot to use, but then I stupidly put the tea in the little strainer insert that goes into the top of the pot. I measured the right amount of water, but it wasn’t deep enough once in the pot to cover the leaves.

Because gyokuro leaves are so incredibly fine, once they’re wet you really can’t move them easily, so I kept adding water until the leaves were covered. Which was significantly more than I should have used.

It was still a fine workday tea. I have other gyokuros. I’ll try again.
