From Ku Cha House of Tea

Gyokuro, which means Jade Dew in Japanese, is admired as the highest grade of Japanese green tea. Its leaves are grown in the shade for twenty days before being expertly picked by hand. Then they are immediately steamed, dried and carefully rolled into distinctive shapes resembling pine needles. Gyokuro is harvested only once a year in the early spring. The delicate flavor and slightly sweet aftertaste make Gyokuro the choice of green-tea connoisseurs. This Gyokuro comes from Hoshino, Fukuoka Prefecture, which consistently produces excellent, high quality tea.

I have been drinking gyokuro once or twice a week for about 14 months, but Teavana has been my only source until now. While I really like the Teavana gyokuro, and it is one of my favorites, I definitely prefer this one. It’s stronger, grassier, and brews dark green. It is very smooth, but not quite as sweet. It held up to 4 steeps easily. I let the water cool down, but I definitely overleaf and oversteep…that’s how I like it. :)

Probably my most favorite green tea thus far.
Grassy, bright. When steeped produces a neon green color. Premium quality loose leaf. Can steep multiple times. Drank this tea like it was going out of style, which is good because it has a shorter shelf life.
