Iced Gyokuro

From the collection
Serves 1


Gyokuro is the top echelon of Japanese leaf teas, always excellent and always expensive. Feel free to substitute a good-quality sencha (the most common type of Japanese tea), following the overnight brewing instructions.


1 Tbsp. (about 6 grams) gyokuro leaves
10 oz. (1¼ cups) cold, filtered water


  1. Combine the tea leaves and water in a liquid measuring cup. Cover and steep 20 minutes to 1 hour at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator. Strain and serve over ice.


The strained tea will keep up to four days in the refrigerator.
