From the Green Tea Family
Origin: Nishio, Japan
Ingredients: 100% organic whole leaf tea

Organic Gyokuro is amongst the finest of Japanese teas, famous for its unique shading process. This sun deprived tea is high in chlorophyll, giving it dark green color. It is also low in tannins, which give it a sweet and mild taste. Organic Gyokuro has a specific way in which it is best prepared for the best taste and quality. Heat spring or filtered water to a “low boil” and make sure it is definitely a low boil or boil and let the water cool down It works best to heat the teapot before brewing because the water is boiled so low. Use 1 tsp of leaves per 4 to 6 ounces of water. Infuse for 2 minutes or longer. Organic Gyokuro can be infused multiple times.

NOTES:
Be sure to use a lower temperature with Organic Gyokuro than you do with other teas to steep it. Let the water cool down a little even from a low boil. It works well to pre-heat both the pot and the cup, as it is brewed at such a low temperature, in order to keep the tea warm when served.
