Steamed green tea from Japan, Gyokuro is among the finest of Japanese teas. While the young leaves of the spring season develop, the tea bushes are shaded from sun for several weeks. This makes the tea grow more slowly, taking time to develop depth and flavor. The sun-deprived leaves are higher in chlorophyll, which creates the vivid green color in the leaves. They're also higher in amino acids, most notably L-theanine, which account for the perfectly smooth, rich and soft flavor of Gyokuro. Deeply sweet, aroma of freshly buttered greens - no grassiness or harshness. Think of tender new grass just sprouting in the spring. Soft on the palate with a balanced, delicate finish. Soothing and centering cup of tea. This tea can be steeped multiple times!
