About this product
For thousands of years, the art of crafting a quality green tea has been carefully studied and perfected. Nowhere is this more evident than in a fresh cup of gyokuro green tea, the most luxurious green tea variety found around the world. This green tea hails from Japan, and its name translates as “jade dew” for the enchanting color and rich taste it provides. Gyokuro is grown in volcanic soil, rich in nutrients, and undergoes a unique growing method to provide a quality and flavor unlike any other green tea. Almost a month before harvesting, the tea plants are shaded in order to control photosynthesis. The harvesters then select the tenderest young leaves to create this famously exquisite brew. A properly-made brew of this excellent green tea produces a fresh aroma and a tender flavor with a delicate and sweet finish.
