... which is why it is called "drop tea."
The key with gyokuro that is worthy of brewing full throttle brewing is temp ... too high really screws things up.
But then I just read about using near boiling for iced gyokuro ... I think Ippodo mentions this as an option.
Gyokuro is not really that hard ...
First start with a really good one from a reputable source
Next get the temp right
Then get the time right ... more leaf does not necessarily mean shorter brew times
Thing is, I really love the jade dew, but I still want sencha virtually all the time. This way having gyokuro is a nice and special event.
