Weight

DESCRIPTION

Gyokuro is one of the highest forms of Japanese whole leaf green tea. We are proud to offer Gyokuro 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.

STEEPING TIPS:

   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.)

   3 mins

ORIGIN

Near Nishio, Aichi Prefecture.

Gyokuro tea!

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!!
