Description

Gyokuro Superb

A top grade Japanese, shade grown green tea.  This is a fantastic spring harvest green tea from Japan’s original tea town, Uji, that is grown in the shade for at least 3 weeks before picking.  The shading boosts certain amino acids in the leaf which creates a wonderfully sweet and savory flavor.  After picking, it is steamed to retain its natural green color and flavor.  This tea has amazingly smooth umami flavor.  Deep green and sweet, this high end Gyokuro has very little bitterness and a strong, lasting buttery finish.  This is one of the highest quality Japanese teas we have ever carried.  A special treat for lovers of rich green tea!
