Gyokuro, meaning ‘pearl dew,’ is among the finest specialty teas of Japan. The secret of this rarity lies in the fact that the young shoots are grown under shady conditions. The tea will delight you with its dark green needle leaf and its fragrant-flowery, almost sweet, very aromatic flavor. It is very flavorful and has a fresh, flowery aroma. This mild, vitalizing tea has found many friends among green tea novices and tea enthusiasts alike.
