From Tea Wing

A connoisseur grade gyokuro from Hoshino Village, home of award winning Japanese tea. Much like France’s famed Bordeaux region, Hoshino Village has the perfect combination of altitude, soil composition and annual rainfall. With a truly remarkable aroma and beautiful needle shaped leaves, this tea unfolds and reveals beautiful structure, balance and body. All with absolutely no astringency. Shizuku Gyokuro offers deep buttery marine notes, roasted nuts and sea salt. An unbelievable “umami” dominates, a sign of the tea’s high amino acid content. A true showcase of the Hoshino Valley.

I like that Tea Wing sends its tea in oxygen-free packaging,,this was the freshest Gyokuro I have ever had and am glad I tried this company.

The dry leaves are a beautiful forest green color with scents of salt, rutabaga , and fresh spinach.

I used my Gyokuro Tokoname serving set for this because you gotta be quick!!! I love the Gyokuro set because you basically pour the water in and in no time, pour into your drinking cup and consume.
The liquor is an amazing spring-green color and the salty broth of it has lots of umami and a buttery note.
This tea is excellent to pair with food because of the savory aspect.

I love Gyokuro and this one was excellent!!!

Yup. I’ve had this sealed in my fridge since spring of 2012, and I only now brewed it. The wet leaves had an aroma that was more truly buttery than any other tea I’ve ever had. It smells just like salted butter melting over warm, fresh greens. The tea broth was very pale, but was full of flavor. It’s very unlike anything I’ve had before. It is so full of umami flavor. I’m not sure if I really like this, but it was something to experience for sure.

This is simply the best gyokuro I’ve ever had. I have only brewed one teaspoon so far, as I just opened it today, but I easily brewed into the 5th steep and the flavor was still incredible. Tea wing’s description of it is perfect. The buttery notes that you get are very interesting. Never had a buttery flavor in tea before and I’ve gotta say I love it! Do yourself a favor and buy this, although it is expensive, it is well worth every penny, at least for a try. You won’t regret it. Tea wing is top level and I really don’t think you will find better tea anywhere in the US
