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.

Green tea, like all teas, is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant. The leaves are picked, withered, and then heated to lock in the freshness, vibrant taste, and green color. Because of this very short processing time, green tea has a higher concentration of chlorophyll, polyphenols, and antioxidants than other tea types. For this reason, green tea has earned a reputation over the past 5,000 years for its health benefits.
Polyphenols are compounds that have been linked to a host of health benefits such as bolstering immune systems and reducing the formation of certain cancers and cardiovascular diseases. Polyphenols are found primarily in plants and notably in very high concentrations in green tea. These potent compounds are best known for their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may help us live our healthiest lives possible.
Green tea is also rich in L-Theanine, an amino acid associated with improved mood and focus, as well as reducing stress and anxiety-like symptoms.
