- 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..

- Best Used By
- See date on package
- 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!
