Uji, Spring 2012
Top grade, Shade grown
Literally "Jade Dew", Gyokuro is often the highest grade of Japanese tea available. Shade grown for at least 20 days before harvesting, the leaves produce extra chlorophyll in turn producing a more vibrant and flavorful green tea.
A deep blue-green body, rich in spinach and oceanic texture, this organically grown gyokuro is decadent, sweet and buttery!
