All-time favorite tea.
Feel like Japanese royalty with this sensational drink, a jewel among green teas.
This is a beautiful, strikingly green tea with a shade-grown flavor, a lightly vegetal and full-bodied tea that leaves the palette fully satisfied. This is a refined, and hardly forgettable tea.
Highly recommended. This is the creme of the crop in Japanese teas.

Though caffeinated, the tea is remarkably zen-inspiring.

**If deciding between Gyokuro and Heavenly Gyokuro, the difference is minor. To save a few bucks, go with the standard gyokuro. It is no less superior, and will not disappoint if brewed well.

Teas take me places around the world. With a cup, I can write, I can think, I can look around me and become aware of little details. I can share it. I can pour it for my guests. I can offer a friendly conversation over a pot of soothing or invigorating tea. I can appreciate the land that cultivated it and the hands that crafted it.
This is why I drink tea.
