How To Brew Gyokuro

Nov 12, 2018 by Aušra Burg

Gyokuro is best steeped in low temperatures and due to its richness best enjoyed in small quantities. Gyokuro also makes an excellent cold brew.

Use a houhin or other small ceramic teapot. To preheat your teaware, pour hot water into the teapot and cup.  Pour the water into a pitcher to cool it. Cool  down the water to 55C.You can use a thermometer to check the water temperature is cool enough.

Add 5g (1 tablespoon) of Uji Gyokuro to the warmed teapot

Pour the water onto the tealeves. Brew for 2 minutes. Pour into your cup using a strainer to catch the fine leaves.
