Gyokuro

Green Tea

Gyokuro stands at near the top of the green tea world. It's picked only during the April/May peak season. The leaves are shaded which produces it's distinct dark green color.  The infusion is a light green color with deep complex flavors. This tea has the classic 'unami' flavors with sweet undertones. Small batch production sourced direct from Japanese growers. 

 

$5.00


Three weeks prior to harvest, gyokuro leaves are shaded to inhibit photosynthesis. This shading process adds to the cost of the tea. Normally, the sun will convert catechins into L-theanine.  As a result, L-theanine builds up to stronger levels. Skilled farmers are able to keep the shade properly balanced to prevent the plant from dying.
