Green tea from Japan, Gyokuro, also known as “precious jade dew” because of its unique blue-green color and naturally sweet taste, is the highest quality Japanese green tea. Made only with the earliest buds of the first spring flush season, Gyokuro usually grows in the shade for around 20 days before hand-harvested.
Due to reduced sunlight, less photosynthesis occurs resulting in increased amounts of amino acids. chlorophyll, and caffeine. This impacts Gyokuro’s color, taste and aroma producing a sweet, delicate tea with a soft, mellow body.
Please note that the ideal brewing temperature for this delicate green teas is 140F-160F.
