Gyokuro (translated as Jade Dew), though not as well known in Australia [as other Japanese green teas such as Sencha, Bancha and Genmaicha], is actually regarded as THE Japanese tea.

Cultivated under shade, it is one of the most expensive Japanese teas. In this shaded environment, the content of amino acid is increased in the tea leaves, hence Gyokuro has a sweeter taste than other Japanese green tea.

Unlike most Japanese green tea, most Gyokuro is still handpicked rather than machine reaped. Water too hot will scorch the leaves and cause bitterness! Our organic Gyokuro has been freshly harvested recently. Packed in 50g Japanese handmade washi paper tins.

Ingredients: Organic green tea (Camellia Sinensis)

It’s turned out slightly more astringent than usual this time, but it’s still an excellent tea, much better than the other gyokuro I tried. Worth taking the time to savour.
