Description

Gyokuro is a shaded tea: 3 weeks before they are harvested, the tea bushes are deprived of light to encourage an umami taste, and a smooth texture. It's name means "Jade dew", a reference to its elegance and tenderness. An excellent tea. This excellent Gyokuro is from Kirishima, in Kagoshima.

Among the finest Japanese green teas, it unveils a fresh vegetal, marine and floral bouquet, boasting a rounded, thick texture and an intense umami taste.

It is ideal for those who want to brew tea the traditional way using a Kyusu. It is also possible to makecold brew tea by replacing the water with ice cubes. The infusion is finished when the ice cubes have completely melted, and you will obtain a concentrated, intense liqueur that is as rare as jade dew.
