Gyokuro Premium (100g/3.53oz)


Nickname Allen Manning - Tea Student   (United States)
Review This Gyokuro was well-balanced, approachable, and survived 3 steeps as advertised. My favorite parameters for brewing Gyokuro are:

Leaf/Water Ratio: 6g per 100ml
Steep 1: room-temp for 14 minutes
Steep 2: 60c for 90 seconds
Steep 3: 65c for 90 seconds

I pushed it to 4 steeps, and feel that 3 steeps is what it can handle. Nothing in your face or that sticks out, some sweetness, steamed kale and broccoli stems, light algea, light savory umami
