Gyokuro

Product information

$6.00

Description

Gyokuro sits on a royal throne amongst elite green teas. It is only picked during the April/May peak season, and the leaves are carefully shaded to produce its distinct dark green color. Our Gyokuro green tea is from a small batch production, sourced directly from Japan. It brews a vivid emerald infusion full of smooth 'umami' flavor. Fresh and vegetal, once you try Gyokuro you won't look back.

For best results, use water at 140-160 degrees. This will prevent bitterness and allow full flavor enjoyment.

Delicious!!

Such a yummy green tea, the umami is very present and makes it addictively good! I add just a tiny bit of agave for sweetness and it is just the best. My favorite green tea I’ve ever tried.

The Real Deal

I love this green tea. Taste authentic right out of Japan. It’s a hard fine to buy real flavorful green tea like this one.

Soulful.

This Gyokuro feeds my soul. Living in Michigan’s upper peninsula, I drink a lot of tea. This is my favorite and has been for a decade. The grassy notes met my expectations. This is a special tea only picked during the early spring. Highly recommend.

Gyokuro

Drinking fine tea is like drinking fine wine. I personally don't like wine very much, but I do love tea. This tea must be brewed at very low temperatures to avoid any bitterness. I actually like the second brew better than the first. I tried it at 145 degrees for 3 minutes and it was too strong, I then tried 2 minutes at 120 degrees F. and it was much better. I enjoy the health benefits and the pleasant grassy hay taste with mild sweet undertones. It needs no sweeting added to it to be enjoyed.
