Gyokuro

Gyokuro Shaded Tea 

Gyokuro is special type of green tea shaded from the sun for 20 days with especially made mats, which allows the caffeine levels to increase in the leaves, as well as allowing the amino acids to get stronger, producing a sweeter and stronger flavor. Because of the cultivation process, the leaves have a very particular odor that is impossible to confuse.

Since the leaves are covered for such a long period of time throughout the cultivation process, the tea leaves are dark, creating a dark tea that is almost a mossy green. Its richness in color translates to a richness in taste, as well, with layers of flavors that never overpower one another.

By purposely blocking usn linght for timed few days before new sprout comes out, the tea creates very unique aroma and taste

  3. Use mesh strainer to filter out the green tea leave and serve hot

Steeping Guide - Cold

  1. Dissolve 3-4 teaspoon of powder into 30 Oz of cold water.  For best result, use filtered water, bottled water. Alternatively, you can boil water and let it cool down until room temperature. 

  2. Keep in refrigerator for 3 hours or more. Key point is to use longer time to dissolve. This way, sweetness increases, and it does not break down theanine and vitamin C.  For best result, let it sit for overnight. 

  3. Stair the water first, then use mesh strainer to filter out the green tea leave and serve cold.
