Preparation of Gyokuro
Gyokuro is a very high quality product and should be prepared with love. We recommend to infuse the tea with 6 g on 500 ml 60 degrees hot water for 2 minutes. Several infusions are definitely possible!
For the ideal Gyokuro experience you can also prepare the tea in the Kyusu, an original Japanese one-handed pot. For this you should brew 4 g of tea with 100 ml of 50 degrees hot water for 3 minutes.
