Miyazaki Gyokuro - Miyazaki Gyokuro is considered one of the noblest teas in Japan because it is a rarity with unique characteristics. After the first annual harvest, Gyokuro presents a composition rich in minerals, promoted by its direct exposure to winter and the final cover of the bushes. As a rule, the youngest leaves are harvested to obtain a greater concentration of the properties of Miyazaki Gyokuro. Compared to Matcha or Sencha, Gyokuro has a slightly bulkier consistency.
Known as one of the "shade teas" or "umami tea", Gyokuro has a high amount of amino acids provided by the cover of the bushes for a period of 20 to 30 days before harvest. This product is made in the mountainous area of Asahina, in the city of Shizuoka. Gyokuro's treatment process is identical to that of Sencha Japanese Green Tea, one of the most cultivated green tea Japanese varieties. In the world of teas of Japanese origin, Gyokuro represents the purest tea of superior quality green tea. Hence, it has a higher monetary value compared to other green teas.
Due to the characteristics of production and storage, the preparation of Miyazaki Gyokuro tea is also specific. You must prepare it in pure water and heat it in an iron cast teapot at 50º to obtain a high-quality Gyokuro. As for its benefits, consuming Gyokuro tea may contribute to delaying premature age and strengthening the immune system. In Japan, it is customary to offer Gyokuro tea to visitors.
Water temperature: 60º to 70º.
Infusion time: 1 to 2 minutes
Preparation: bring a liter of water (1L) to a boil. After boiling, turn off the heat, and take a tablespoon of Miyazaki Gyokuro. Then cover the container, and let it infuse for 2 minutes. After that, you must remove the leaves quickly. You may want to consider reducing the quantity of tea if you feel the flavor is too strong for you. You can also reuse the leaves in two more infusions. The first infusion has a more intense flavor.
