Gyokuro (Organically Grown)

Weight

DESCRIPTION

Gyokuro is one of the highest forms of Japanese whole leaf green tea. We are proud to be offering Gyokuro from a certified Organic production that comes from Aichi Prefecture. Like the leaves for matcha, tea bushes are grown under intense shade for 2-3 weeks before the harvest of Gyokuro. 

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.

STEEPING TIPS:

Use one heaping tsp to 4 oz water

Water temperature: 122 F (We recommend using lukewarm water and longer steeping time. This brings out the sweetness better in the tea.)

Steeping time: 3 mins 

ORIGIN

Near Nishio, Aichi Prefecture.
