Gyokuro is one of the highest forms of organic Japanese whole leaf green tea. We are proud to offer Gyokuro green tea from a certified Organic production that comes from Aichi Prefecture. Like the tea bushes for matcha, for Gyokuro the tea bushes are grown under intense shade for 2-3 weeks before the plucking of leaves.
DRY LEAF: Long needle like, vivid green leaves with a rich sweet smell.
WET LEAVES: Grassy green with a savory nose.
CUP: Light green liquor. Slightly grassy, salty, creamy with a mild sweetness. Rich umami.
1 heaping tsp to 4oz water
124 F (We recommend using lukewarm water and longer steeping time. This brings out the sweetness better in the tea.)

This is one of the best shops in Rochester. Well worth the visit! The only place I go for loose tea.
The best Gyokuru I’ve had!
Fast and easy shipping, comes with a note from the owner.
Wonderful tea! Wonderful tea shop!
This tea is AMAZING. I visited Rochester to see some friends and had to stock up on Sencha at your place, as I always do. When I arrived the Sencha had not come in yet, so the Gyokuro was recommended to me. I actually think I like it more than regular Sencha! It's very similar but has a slightly earthier and fresher taste that I love. I'll be switching over permanently to this. I have been a huge fan of your tea since you opened in town and continue to feel that it is the best tea I can find ANYWHERE. Thanks for always having such delicious tea!!
Rose, thank you for the review! Sencha arrived only yesterday and we were thinking of letting you know. Guess now there is no need! You have found a better tea! :)
