Yamashita's Gyokuro "Nomigoro"
In contrast to the very popular ‘Shincha’ (freshly harvested tea) Nomigoro belongs to the ‘Kuradashi Cha’ (out of the storehouse tea) category. As with good wine it takes many years to mature it’s distinct flavor. Tea expert Yamashita Toshikazu keeps this Gyokuro in a designated cold store for about 5 years to create an especially potent sweetness and mellow flavor.
The thick leaves create an emerald colored beverage with a soft palate texture. The high quality tea maintains its good flavor even up to 4-5 servings.
