  • Description

Gyokuro tea is a high-quality Japanese green tea that is known for its rich flavor, vibrant green color, and sweet, umami taste. It is considered one of the finest and most sought-after green teas in Japan, prized for its complex flavors and unique production process.

Gyokuro tea is grown in the shade for several weeks before harvesting, which helps to enhance the tea leaves' flavor and aroma. The shading process increases the chlorophyll content in the leaves, giving them a deep green color and a rich, savory taste. This shading also reduces the bitterness in the tea leaves, resulting in a smoother and sweeter cup of tea.

The tea leaves used to make Gyokuro are typically harvested by hand and undergo a meticulous production process to preserve their delicate flavors. After harvesting, the leaves are steamed, rolled, and dried to lock in their freshness and nutrients. The final product is a tightly rolled tea leaf that unfurls when brewed, releasing its full flavor and aroma.

When brewed, Gyokuro tea produces a bright green liquor with a sweet and savory taste that is often described as vegetal, grassy, and slightly seaweed-like. It has a smooth and velvety texture, with a lingering umami flavor that is characteristic of high-quality Japanese green teas.

Gyokuro tea is best brewed at a lower temperature than other green teas to bring out its full flavor profile. It is traditionally enjoyed in small teacups to savor its complex flavors and aromas. Gyokuro tea is a luxurious and indulgent tea that is perfect for tea enthusiasts looking to experience the pinnacle of Japanese green tea craftsmanship.
