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.
