One of the most sought after green teas in the world - it is made from single buds that are picked but once a year. In an effort to develop increased chlorophyll, the garden is covered with dark curtains, bamboo or straw shade for about two weeks in early spring. Naturally sweet. Exceptional quality!
Tea Type: Green💚
STEEP: 1 teaspoon per 8 ounce cup for 90 seconds @ 160°
Such a beautiful and delicate green tea. Sweet and grassy is an apt description. An afternoon luxury...I think this might be my favorite tea now 🤗💚
A very nice Gyokuro at an attractive price. It has that sweet, grassy, herbaceous taste without being astringent. One of my daily drinkers.
