(recipe, Matthew Amster-Burton)
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.
The strained tea will keep up to four days in the refrigerator. Read more about green tea in Matthew Amster-Burton's "Green goddess."
