This tea is harvested in Kirishima, Kagoshima prefecture, from the Saemidori cultivar. Gyokuro is a shaded tea: three weeks before harvesting, the tea plants are deprived of light to allow this tea's umami taste and highly smooth texture to develop.

A highly fresh and vegetal Gyokuro Shincha with an oily texture and the pleasant vivaciousness of spring.

This tea is grown organically and certified by Ecocert, an accredited independent certification body.

Grands Crus: savour the exceptional

Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
