Gyokuro, Organic

Sale price

Regular price $6.50
( / )

The name of this sophisticated Japanese tea translates to ‘jade dew’, describing the color of its infusion. Our gyokuro is grown in rich volcanic soil on the south eastern coast of Kyushu, an area known as a leader in organic farming practices. ‘Umami’ in taste and aroma, with a sweet rich finish, the leaves are very fine, needle-shaped and a brilliant dark green color due to being shade grown, which gives gyokuro a higher chlorophyll content than most teas.


Umami, seaweed, sweetly grassy and rich.

Tasting Notes:

This most elegant and sophisticated Japanese tea is the quintessential tea for a special occasion. The name translates to ‘jade dew,’ describing the color of its infusion. Our gyokuro is grown in rich volcanic soil on the southeastern coast of Kyushu, an area known as a leader in organic farming practices. ‘Umami’ in taste and aroma, this smooth infusion will make you feel like you’re taking an exquisite plunge under the sea! Its finish is sweet and rich. The fine, needle-shaped leaves are a dark emerald green color due to being partially shade-grown, which gives gyokuro a high chlorophyll content.

My most favorite tea

I love Gyokuro and I have been ordering Tea Spot's for a few years now. While I haven't consumed a Gyokuro I have yet to enjoy, Tea Spot's is a nice step above others I have had. It just tastes a bit cleaner and smoother. I'm really not sure what it is about this tea that I love so much. I just know that I just get this immediate sense of calm and relaxation when from the first sip I take. Maybe I am just overtaken by the delicious flavor or maybe it truly has that much L-theanine. I honestly don't know. I just love the flavor and the experience of drinking it, and I am not one who typically cares about the latter. I highly recommend this tea to green tea lovers. Just note that this tea really is brewed best at lower temperatures and for shorter durations of time (I personally use simmering water and brew for just under 2 minutes).

Perfectly warm

This tea is amazing! We swerve your teas to our clients at our design studio and I felt like trying something different from the jasmine pearls I usually order and being cautious I ordered the small sample size packs…. I will be ordering the 1 lb bag tomorrow. I found the tea rich and warm in flavor , the perfect afternoon sipping tea

This tea has a smooth rich green flavor that I can’t compare with anything else. If you enjoy green teas that have depth and complexity this is a delight for the senses. I’ve only had it as a cold brew so far, I imagine made fresh and hot will also be outstanding. I bought a 1/4 lb knowing only the description, I was not disappointed.


My favorite! ❤️

Love this tea!

I’ve substituted this tea for my afternoon caffeine pick-up. It’s great with honey, and the subscription service is a plus.
