From Aiya

Organic Gyokuro is one of the rarest teas in the world. Aiya has exclusive experience working with Japanese farmers to achieve this high-level of Gyokuro which meets international organic standards. Fresh shade grown leaves are carefully handpicked to maximize Gyokuro’s natural sweetness.

To enjoy the natural sweetness of Gyokuro, use cooler water and steep it longer. Bring the water to a boil and allow it to cool to 50°C/122°F. Steep 1 heaping teaspoon (3g) of Organic Gyokuro for 3 minutes in 120ml/4 oz of hot water. With this tea, one can pour more hot water over the tea leaves and enjoy another cup.

When Aiya releases something new – it’s like a grand fanfare and rightfully-so! This is delightful! It’s light but flavorful – pleasant and beautiful – vegetal yet sweet – bold yet delicate. It’s quite clean and very impressive. It’s good for multiple infusions, too!

A lovely Gyokuro experience!


I’m curious. I’ve not had any Gyokurus yet. Did this one have a lot of umami in it like the Gyokuru Imperial fermataleaf just reviewed?

Full review will post on Sororitea Sisters on the 27th but here are my snippits:

I feel very centered and balanced when I sip this tea, and it makes me feel like I am doing something really wonderful for my body, and mind. Gyokuro is known for its balance of sweet and bitter, even when steeped properly there is a slight astringency in the sip. Yet, it is sweet as well, which brings this perfect harmony to the cup. Its the perfect balance indeed.

There is just something special about Japanese Green Tea, something that only high quality companies that have high standards can bring us as tea lovers. Aiya brings us some of the best examples of excellent Japanese Green Tea.

It tastes so sweet and beautiful … like the early days of spring! It has a strong vegetative tone, even though the overall cup is delicate, the vegetative tones stand out. It is somewhere between a lightly steamed spinach-y taste and that of kelp … but without the briny notes of the kelp. Sweet and green and lovely. One of the nicest Gyokuro teas I’ve yet to taste … it tastes so very clean and wonderful.

The leaves stand up well to multiple infusions as well … I’m on my second infusion now!

Received a sample when I ordered their matcha. It has a nice nutty quality, not as seaweed/briny as I was expecting it to be. Has a leafy green and vegetal taste after the nuttiness abates. Nice.
