Gyokuro Green Tea

New Mexico Tea Company
s
  • Spoon 1 tsp Per Cup
  • Kettle 160°F
  • Timer 2 Min

The finest Japanese loose leaf tea. Gyokuro leaves are shaded at least three weeks prior to harvest, in the same way as Matcha. However, post-harvest processing is identical to Sencha. The resulting tea has a deep green color, translucent emerald-like liquor, and rich flavor. The characteristic flavor of Gyokuro is a pronounced umami highlighted with sweet overtones.

This is Japan's best green tea. It is made from single buds that are picked only in April/May. In an effort to increase chlorophyll and reduced the tannin, which makes it sweeter, the tea is covered with black curtains or bamboo and straw shades for 3 weeks in early spring.

Ingredients:

High quality green tea

Origin:

Fukuoka, Japan

Y'know the smell of fresh-cut grass? This tea is just like that. Sweet and grassy. Temperature is important if brewing with hot water. The flavor will be damaged if the water is too hot.
