Gyokuro Tea – Our answer to most things in life!
At eteaket HQ, you will hear the name of this tea uttered often. ‘Oh are you getting a cold? Go and get some Gyokuro!’ Or ‘Oh are you not feeling great, go and get a mug of Gyokuro!’. So I am sure you can see we are a huge fan. Our Gyokuro is our favourite green tea here at eteaket.
As one of Japan’s most coveted teas Gyokuro translates to Jade dew in reference to its emerald green leaves and pale green-blue liquor. Before it is harvested in early spring Gyokuro bushes are shaded under bamboo mats for first 3 weeks of May while the first flush develops. This causes chemical changes in the leaf which increases the amino acids and sugar and chlorophyll and enhancing the unique flavour. Morever, the shading decreases the bitterness and results in a sweet, flavourful cup. Gyokuro was first produced Kyoto in the 1830’s, there are different variations but they all use similar kneading and drying method similar to Sencha Green Tea.
Gyokuro is truly Japan’s best tea. And wow, trust is, it’s special. However, we strongly suggest you make sure that you brew this tea at 80 degrees so that you do not burn the leaves – it makes such a difference to the taste. If you are using a standard kettle, just make sure to add some cold water to cool the water down before adding your tea to brew.
We think the best way to brew loose leaf tea is with an Infuser Mug or an Infuser Teapot like our colourful eteaket teapots or Curated Japanese Tea Sets. Other handy tools include the Perfect Tea Measure Spoon and a Tea Timer.
