Product Description

Gyokuro tea is grown beneath shading, cutting out some 85% of the sunlight. This allows the leaves to mature without obtaining bitterness. The results is an ultra delicate green tea with an extremely sweet taste profile.

 

The Standard Gyokuro Tea can also be called Netsuyu Gyokuro (hot water gyokuro). Shaded for a shorter amount of time (about two weeks) than the more premium gyokuro teas, it has a much more balanced taste due to the higher levels of catechin, antioxidants that create the firm, bitter flavor in Japanese green tea..

[Steeping Notes]

Steeping gyokuro tea delicately
We highly recommend starting with the gyokuro steeping technique for the first steep, then move on to the warm water steeping technique or the standard technique for the 2nd - 4th steeps.
Tea Salad!
And, when you're done, don't throw away the leaves. They become soft and tender, lacking bitterness -- perfect as a tea leaf salad!
