Gyokuro Green Tea

玉露

The Origin Story
Gyokuro is shaded for 30 days before picking. This process creates green teas with uniquely thick and creamy texture and condensed, umami-rich flavour. This is a terrific example of Gyokuro green tea, picked in early May in Asahina Valley tea gardens.
Japan - Shizuoka

Shizuoka is a renowned centre for high quality green tea production in Japan

The largest tea-producing region in Japan, particularly famed for its sencha, Shizuoka sits in the central Honshu island of Japan with a Pacific Ocean coastline. The beauty of this area and its suitability for tea production, is summed up in its name, meaning in English "tranquil hills".

    Gyokuro Green Tea
    The best Japanese green tea I've ever tried. Better than the Matcha or Sencha. Refreshing and mildly sweet after taste.

    I've come to gyokuro comparatively late; when I started being a tea-nut, I began with Chinese teas (and with Jing!). wasn't too curious about Japanese teas, I'm ashamed to say - and thought gyokuro might be a bit of a challenge (water temperature, etc.) couldnt have been more wrong! it's a pleasure to brew - beautiful tight deep emerald green leaves (like crushed jewels) unfold and become bright green in infusion. Flavour fresh, vibrant - and green (again the word!) - a lovely contrast to other teas in flavour and appearance. Fits beautifully into a range of options and does well with multiple infusions. So happy I've found it! "

    I bought this tea without much idea what it would be like. I have to say I'm very glad I did. it's refreshing and clean with a wonderful flavour. I think I could get used to drinking this tea every day.
