Review by Jeff K.
Overall Character
This tea almost defies description, and has re-defined the way I perceive Japanese Green Tea. The leaves are long, slender, shiny and a beautiful dark green, and give off a very delicate yet fragrant aroma.

The labor-intensive processing is evident upon opening the one pound tin and seeing what I might just venture to call "Tea Perfection through Tea Obsession" this tea literally radiates pride and quality, for which the Japanese are so well-known.

The cup is pale, belying the depth of flavor that this soothing tea has to the very last drop, and while not assertive, the tea does have a satisfying presence: this is precious tea here, no question about it, a little goes a long way, and easily gives at least two infusions.

This tea demands careful attention to water temperature and quality, I brew the first pot at 160 degrees F. For two minutes, and I am still experimenting with subsequent infusions, and have produced a good second infusion at 170 F. For three minutes. (Posted on 10/25/2017)

Gyokuro Jade Dew Green

Gyokuro is one of Japan's rarest and most prized teas. Its long, slender, dark green leaves are produced by shading the tea plant three weeks before it is hand cut with scissors. Consisting of only the tender leaf tips, we are pleased to offer this season's recent pickings. Also referred to as Gyokuro Asahina, It yields a greenish-gold color with a mild flavor and incomparable natural flowery aroma when brewed.

Brewing Tips: Our Gyokuro Jade Dew Green tea should be made with cold, filtered water that has been brought to a boil and then allowed to cool for 2 minute (160-170° F). Using one rounded teaspoon of loose tea or one teabag for each cup required, pour the boiling water over the tea leaves. Gyokuro Jade Dew Green tea should be steeped for 1.5-2 minutes. Once the ideal brewing time has been reached, the leaves should be removed to prevent further steeping. Decant and enjoy!


How Much Tea Do I Need?
1 pound of loose leaf tea will make approximately 160 cups of brewed tea
8 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 80 cups of brewed tea
4 ounces of loose leaf tea will make approximately 40 cups of brewed tea
