Here the Tea Master made us a cup of Gyokuro.
This shaded tea is the highest tea in Japan. It is grown in only 3 small areas and can only be produced once a year (hence the hefty price tag!)
How to Prepare Gyokuro ~ with each infusion, Steeping Time decreases by 30 secs while Temperature increases by 10 degrees :
1st Infusion – 2 mins / 50-60 degrees
2nd Infusion – 1.5 mins / 60-70 degrees
3rd Infusion – 1 min / 70-80 degrees
