Uji Gyokuro “Kame-Jiru-Shi” – Currently one of our very highest quality gyokuro green teas and available only in limited supplies. We offer this gyokuro in 50 gram packages. From Uji, near Kyoto, the top 2 leaves are picked by hand. Gyokuro is shade grown before harvesting, giving it a greener color and sweeter taste. Once you learn to make it properly, you wil be hooked for life! As this is an expensive, high quality green tea be sure to read our gyokuro brewing instructions carefully as it is brewed differently than sencha. (From the website)

So I’ve wanted a houhin style teapot for a few years now but never looked in the right places. I remember them using this teapot for Gyokuro and other delicate Japanese teas at TeaSmith in London. Anyways, since I was ordering the teapot, I had to order some new tea to try with it, right?

My teapot and “Kame-Jiru-Shi” Gyokuro arrived today. I was not disappointed! The teapot is just the right size and the built in mesh strainer is perfect for Japanese greens. I’m worried that the steel strainer will “age” with regular use, but we’ll see.

The tea itself is amazing, of course. The first infusion was so sweet, one might mistakenly think the drink was sweetened with a drop of honey or something. The leaves are a deep emerald green and beautiful. I’ve not had any other Gyokuro tea from O-Cha so I can’t make a direct comparison; However, this is probably the best Gyokuro I have tasted.

I’ve been very impressed with everything O-Cha. I think I want to make an order with O-Cha.com every 6 months for all of my Japanese tea needs. The steep delivery cost from Japan is well worth the qualiteas they offer.
