Wazuka Gyokuro
The ultimate green leaf tea, Gyokuro ("jade dew") is shaded as it grows in order to intensify its color and flavor. This year we moved from Uji to nearby Wazuka in Kyoto prefecture for our Gyokuro - which is made from the gokou ("five scent") varietal - making it sweet, smooth and incredibly full-bodied. Brew it with cold, warm, hot or even boiling water... we think you'll agree this tea is amazing.

PREPARATION
:
One of the most delicate of all teas, Gyokuro may be prepared in a small teapot or a traditional steeping cup (known as a gaiwan). Preheat the vessel with hot water and fill with 2-4 teaspoons of leaf per 8 oz of water. Gyokuro should be brewed with cool water [45°-55°C (113°-131°F)] for 1-2 min. and served in pre-warmed cups. Alternatively, use hotter water and an infusion time of 10-20 sec.
