Description

Inspired by the popularity of our Matcha Super Green tea (first flush matcha blended with first and second flush sencha) we developed a super-premium version with organic gyokuro. Whereas Matcha Super Green highlights the fresh bittersweet character of sencha, Matcha Gyokuro has a smoother profile that delivers a rich concentration of umami and a silky, creamy finish unlike any other green tea we've ever formulated. L-theanine junkies rejoice!


Origin

Kagoshima, Japan

Tasting Notes

Top shelf green tea combining first flush matcha with gyokuro for the most vivid emerald green infusion and lush umami flavor.

Ingredients

Organic gyokuro, organic matcha.

Preparation

Leaf Amount
4 grams | 1 tbsp
Water Amount
8 ounces
Water Temperature
160°F
Steep Time
1st Infusion: 30 seconds
2nd infusion: 1 min
3rd infusion: 90 sec

Traditional Brewing

Kyusu Brewing from Rishi Tea on YouTube.

For the best infusions, we recommend brewing this tea in a Kyusu teapot.

We encourage you to experiment with the quantity of tea leaves and the length of the steep time to find your desired brew strength. Varying the water temperature isn't recommended, as water that is too hot will over-extract the bitter components of tea, while water that is too cool might not fully draw out the aromas and flavors of tea.

Really delightful, bright green color, delicate, refreshing taste. Perhaps I like this better than the powdered matcha.
