Japanese Gyokuro

Japanese Gyokuro

Description

Gyokuro is one of Japan’s rarest finest quality teas and most expensive. Locally known as Jade Dew because of the pale green infusion, gyokuro is made with tea bushes covered with cloth or reed screen for approximately 20 days prior to picking. By limiting the amount of light that reaches the new shoots while they are growing, the generation of catechins from amino acids (theanine) is suppressed, resulting in lower astringency and a rich flavor. 

An aroma, similar to nori seaweed, is one of Gyokuro’s unique characteristics.
