Uji, Spring 2017/2018
Oceanic, deep green
Gyokuro is a unique tea…before harvest the tea plants are covered with a shade canopy for the last three to four weeks before harvest. As a result, this tea is overflowing with rich green character and a smooth sweet finish.
Our gyokuro is covered with the traditional covering method of using straw, rather than a plastic material. This imparts a touch of character not often found in your average gyokuro.
This high grade Gyokuro will satisfy followers of this unique green tea.
We will ship 2017 until the fall, as we are aging the Spring harvest to allow time for the taste to mature.
If you prefer 2018, no problem, just please let us know if the checkout notes!
$6.00 – $165.00
