A rare jewel plucked from trees shaded for 20 30 days with expert covering techniques, creates this fragrant green tea brew that only a few tea-growers can cultivate. The highest quality Gyokuro is shaded before harvest using ‘Tana’, a special method that requires skillful expertise and care for the tea plants. An award winning tea nominated for Japan's National Tea Competition, it usually takes a decade of intensive processing and learnings to perfect. They are judged on basis of aroma, appearance, colour and flavour profile of the brewed green tea.
What makes it great
Grown to signature perfection and loved by a well-acquainted palate, the final yield of this competition tea is only about one fifth of other varieties as it is harvested when the leaves are very young. The final brew in your cup is not an ordinary tea but a skillful reflection of tea farmers’ efforts over several generations!
Taste and Aroma Notes
The unique shading method for this green tea creates an excellent and evolved sweetness with a noble aroma and complex taste profile. The liquor is a sophisticated and delicate green toned sight.
Don't throw away your tea after steeping it! One of the greatest advantage of drinking whole leaf tea is that each serving of leaves can be re-steeped many times.
This tea can be re-steeped 5 times. We recommend using 6 grams of this whole leaf tea for 150ml of water
50 gms= 42 cups of tea
We recommend returning to any used tea leaves within the day.
