Green tea from Japan famed for its unique shading process. Gyokuro, meaning ‘pearl dew,’ is among the finest of Japanese teas. Our ‘Moonlight Gyokuro’ is made solely from the prized tender buds gathered in the early spring flush. Three weeks prior to plucking, tea bushes are shaded from the sun. The fruits of this hard work are evident in each cup. The result is a gentle tea with an intoxicating fragrance and truly sublime taste.
