Harvested only once a year, Japanese Gyokuro green tea leaves produce a very green cup with a low-tannin, vegetal flavor. Accompany pot stickers with your favorite dipping sauce, such as soy or sweet and sour.

  1. Combine first seven ingredients (cabbage through soy sauce) in a large bowl.
  2. Steep tea in 1 cup nearly boiling water for 15 seconds. Strain tea; discard water. Chop tea leaves and add to cabbage mixture.
  3. Combine ½ cup water and cornstarch. Place 1 tablespoon cabbage mixture in center of a wrapper. Brush edges with water-cornstarch mixture. Fold to make a half-moon shape. Press edges and crimp with a fork. Repeat with all wrappers and filling.
  4. Heat 2 tablespoons vegetable oil in a sauté pan. When hot, add six dumplings to sear. When brown, turn, and then add ¼ cup hot water and cover immediately to steam. Steam 2–3 minutes; remove from heat. Repeat with all dumplings.
