.... I went with a ratio of 1.5:1, 6 grams in 4 ounces....Brewed with around 120* water for 90 seconds.
Bottom line, this was smoother, sweeter than the intense 2:1.

This was the beggining of the OTTI for me. This OTTI was a real eye-opener for me. It was a great way to enter the world of "good" gyokuro. I am looking forward to experiencing the higher grades of gyouro in the future rounds!

I have noticed one nasty aspect of this tasting....I want to drink gyokuro everyday after dinner. I love its concentrated richness. And I don't want to buy any before shincha is released.
:shaking fist at Chip:
A few more gyokuro OTTIs and you may feel the need to change your forum name....
