From O-Cha.com

A “select”, high quality first-flush gyokuro grown in Yame, Japan. Over 50% of all gyokuro grown in Japan comes from Yame. 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! Make sure to read our brewing instructions, as it is brewed differently than sencha.

Quality Gyokuro at an affordable price.

First brew is golden and light.
Second brew is brothier, more vegetal, and still golden.
As you rebrew the leaves, the brew turns from gold to a spring green, the liquor strengthening in color and flavor until after the 3rd brew..

From until the 5th brew, the leaves resiliently produce a well rounded cup of tea. The leaves do not bitter in the sitting water when prepared correctly.

Leaves are an even tone of a deep, rich forest green and very silky. Care for the leaves during growth and harvest are apparent through the appearance of the leaves, and the complex flavor of the brew.

Sweet, vegetal, light. Great for memory, attentiveness, cleaning out the blood, and weight loss.
