STORY BEHIND THE TEA

Luxurious Uji competition grade Gyokuro! Refined sweet with an elegant Umami. It’s hard to come by Gyokuros like this, so the amount is very limited! 

Gyokuro is a Japanese Green Tea only made of the youngest buds and leaves of the spring harvest, shaded for a long time for more amino acids to remain in the leaves and ultimately produce more umami and sweetness in the cup. Traditionally left to rest for half a year just like Tencha used for Matcha, it is now also valued very fresh and is especially valued as 新茶/shincha/fresh tea. Coming from 煎茶道/senchadō, the Japanese way of steeped tea, it is prepared using cool water to a lot of leaf, resulting in concentrated drops of essential oil quality. We especially enjoy Gyokuro in summer slowly steeped only using ice.
