Gyokuro

Gyokuro is the most highly valued Japanese green tea and can be hard to find outside of Japan. It is produced entirely by hand so utmost care is taken with every stage of production. The tea bushes are shaded to encourage a heightened level of caffeine and amino acids while decreasing the catechin content of the leaves. Gyokuro has a beautiful dark emerald green colour, combined with a delicious, buttery, sweet, and complex range of flavours. A perfectly balanced and soft tasting organic brew for the discerning tea drinker.
