Hot Tea Brewing Instructions:

Bring spring or filtered drinking water to 160°F in a kettle. Add 1 tsp of tea leafs to a cup. Always pour boiling water over tea leafs and let steep 2 minutes.

Any of these variables can be changed to suit your particular palate, so experiment! Many teas can be steeped multiple times (especially green, white, and oolong). When steeping a tea multiple times increase the length of steep time slightly with each successive infusion.

Iced Tea Brewing Instructions:

1) Hot water method: For 1 gallon of iced tea, bring half a gallon of filtered water to boil in a pot. Turn off heat, and add 3 tablespoons (1 oz of tea), let steep for 2 minutes. Strain the tea into the other half gallon of cool water and refrigerate. If you want to serve immediately, you can pour the concentrate over ice to cool and dilute, then pour over ice again.

2) Sun tea: use a glass container and add 1 tsp of loose tea of each cup of water directly into the jug. Then set in the sun for a few hours, tasting occasionally to get the desired strength.

3) Cold brew: The slow cold-water-steeping method extracts natural sweetness and flavor from the tea leaf. It lessens the bitterness and tangy-ness produced by tannic acid so your tea tastes smooth and mild. Add 1 tsp of tea per cup of cold water and put in the refrigerator. When the water is chilled, your tea will be ready!

Label Art

The finest Japanese loose leaf tea. Gyokuro leaves are shaded at least three weeks prior to harvest, in the same way as Matcha. However, post-harvest processing is identical to Sencha. The resulting tea has a deep green color, translucent emerald-like liquor, and rich flavor. The characteristic flavor of Gyokuro is a pronounced umami highlighted with sweet overtones.

Extra Info:

This is Japan's best green tea. It is made from single buds that are picked only in April/May. In an effort to increase chlorophyll and reduced the tannin, which makes it sweeter, the tea is covered with black curtains or bamboo and straw shades for 3 weeks in early spring.

Ingredients:

High quality green tea,

Origin:

Fukuoka, Japan
