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.)
Near Nishio, Aichi Prefecture.
