Be prepared to be utterly astounded. 

Gyokuro is the highest grade of Japanese green loose leaf tea - a shade grown sencha. The tea leaves are shielded from the sun for a few weeks before being harvested. This slow, deliberate shade growth increases the amino acid theanine and the alkaloid caffeine in the leaves and produces a very smooth flavour.

This Gyokuro was crafted by one of the oldest masters in Uji, Japan.

A remarkably smooth and silky infusion that is rich, complex, and deeply vegetal.

Quantity

Use 2 grams of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

The ideal temperature is around 60°C (140°F).

(Although you might want to try as low as 34°C for the first infusion and raise the temperature 5°C for each subsequent steep.)

Time

You can infuse this tea at least six times, often more if doing multiple small infusions.  With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.
