Because it would be such a pity to throw away the precious Gyokuro leaves after steeping, I always eat them. Anyone else doing this?
I think they're really tasty on their own, but also combined with rice.
I'm SLIGHTLY concerned about potential traces of Fukushima radioactivity though... But I get my teas from Yuuki-Cha and they have a section on the safety issues. Besides, my Gyokuro is from Uji, which has apparently not been affected.
Another simple and tasty recipe I make is rice noodles + Gyokuro leaves (+ nori seaweed flakes if I'm in the mood) + bouillon from a vegetarian stock cube. A healthy afternoon snack
