      Gyokuro Green Tea Bags

      New & Improved Gyokouro Tea Bags...

      We finally came across a gyokuro green tea bag of a high quality that is worthy of our lineup. Unlike the vast majority of green tea tea bags you run across, each of our Gyokuro Green Tea Bags consists of 5 grams of high quality gyokuro leaf (not tea dust).  There are a few gyokuro stems in this tea bag which give the tea a slight astringency but the main flavor is gyokuro all the way.

      This tea bag comes in a triangular, biodegradable (not plastic or nylon) mesh infusion bag, and will not affect the taste as traditional paper teabags are known to do. A wonderful grassy aroma awaits you when you open the re-sealable package.

      As of November 2020, the tea bag material used for our Uji green tea bags is composed of a starch based biomass material derived from plants. In addition to the filter, the laminate on the tag and string of this product also incorporate the same environmentally-friendly material.

      One package includes (16) five-gram high quality gyokuro tea bags, try some today!

       

      Notes on Brewing this gyokuro tea bag

      To brew this successfully, you do need to take temperature into consideration. A good proceedure is to use TWO cups to brew this tea.

      1) In your first cup, add hot water (90 ℃ / 194 ℉) and allow it to sit for about a minute. The temperature will drop (see detailed product  images).

      2) Next, pour the water from the first cup into a second cup. The temperature will drop further (see detailed product  images).

      3) Lastly, put the teabag into the first cup (which is now pre-warmed) and pour the water from the second cup back into the first cup with the tea bag. 55℃ / 131℉ is the perfect temperature, brew this for 2.5 to 3 minutes (this is longer than for sencha). Place your used tea bag into the second cup for subsequent infusions.

        Brewed it cold.
        Rich flavour with plenty of nuances, dense, sweet and nice umami.

        This tea has a semi sweet, grassy flavor that goes really well with a tablespoon of honey. The tea is enjoyable with or without honey, however I found that this tea is my favorite to pair with honey because of the unique flavor it creates.

        Very good gyokuro quality in a bagged tea! I bought this for ease of brewing while traveling. I was a bit hesitant to try gyokuro in tea bags, but the quality far exceeded my expectations. The product is as pictured on the O-Cha website--very few stems, large 5g bags. I brew a minimum of 3 infusions (sometimes up to 5) from the same bag. Note that the bags are not individually wrapped.

        Unique taste, an interesting change of pace from the Uji teabags, very high quality, much more leaf than in other Gyokuru bags I have purchased.

        This is my another favorite next to Uji tea bags. It has tea stems, which gives it unique grassy flavor.
