This Kyoto Gyokuro is considered the highest grade of green tea in Japan.
Gyokuro is made from the first flush leaf and has an incredible sweetness due to farmers shading the tea bushes from sunlight 20 days prior to harvesting, boosting theanine levels and sweetness in the tea.
For ultimate sweetness and Umami sensation, brew at just 50-60°C.
Made from the Yabukita cultivar, Gyokuro’s leaves are flat and pointed providing a smooth taste and fresh fragrance.
After Matcha, this tea contains the highest number of minerals and vitamins.
