Description - Research and Analysis

Gyokuro Is Japan's most well known green tea, made out of individual buds that can only be picked within the months of April and May. To increase the amount of chlorophyl (making the tea greener), and to decrease the amount of tannin (making the tea sweeter without a tart taste), the tea is covered with black curtains or shades made of straw and bamboo for up to three weeks in the early spring. The leaves are small - approximately 3/4 of an inch in length and very aromatic and soft. Instantaneously after pulling off the branch, the leaves are taken to the manufacturing unit and steamed for approximately 30 minutes to seal in the flavor and prevent fermentation. Subsequently, the leaves are fluffed in hot air and ironed and dried-up to realize 30% moisture content. The tea leaves are rolled again and again until the tea develops thin, long, dark green needles and then it's again dried to attain a 4-6% moisture content.

Gyokuro has been referred to as "history, philosophy and art in an individual teacup." Gyokuro is the best known green tea in all of the Japanese Islands. It is frequently brewed in a special Japanese teapot known as a "kyusu" and served to the lucky drinkers in handle-less cups.

The Japanese take the drinking of tea very seriously, and the better the tea, the more money the Japanese are keen to pay for it. It is not unheard of for some Gyokuros to sell for more than $1000 per pound. Gyokuro is the most expensive tea in the world. Gyokuro is expensive due to the added care taken to shade the old Tea trees, thereby cutting the full effect of photosynthesis. Gyokuro is rare and dear to produce, so that drives up the cost of this unbelievable Japanese green tea!

Directions

Hot tea brewing method: The secret is to use water between 120 and 150 degrees farenheit. Place 1 tea bag into your cup. Let the tea steep for about 2 minutes. Pour off the tea completely and begin enjoying a cup of enchantment. The tea bag can then be re-infused with water between 135 and 160 degrees farenheit and on the third and final brewing use water between 150 and 180 degrees farenheit.

Iced tea brewing method: (not recommended)

Great Gyokuro Tea  Gyokuro Imperial Japanese Green Tea

This is my favorite Gyokuro tea. It has crisp lines, and steeps well. My mother bought this for me originally and I have been buying Terravita Gyokuro tea ever since. I prefer to steep it for an abbreviated amount of time, as I do not like my tea too strong. Thank you Terravita, and thank you Zooscape!
