Gyokuro - Kamigokoro

Kanbayashi is a 450 year old famous company from the Kyoto area. Their original store is actually a tourist attraction.
They are noted for being the first Japanese company to make tea for the Muromachi Shogunate (about 1560 A.D.).

Gyokuro:
a) For one person, place about two heaping tablespoons (10 grams) into a teapot.
b) Pour about 80 ml. (about 2 oz. or 1/3 measuring cup) of 60 C (140 F) water into the teapot. Be careful not to disturb the teapot as it steeps; this will prevent bitterness.
c) Let steep for about 1 to 1 minutes. The tea leaves will unravel in the teapot, releasing the full flavor.
d) Pour into your (preferably) pre-heated teacup and enjoy. For a second or third cup, you can pour the hot water into the same teapot and then serve immediately (no steeping necessary).
