Gyokuro is a high-quality Japanese green tea that is made from shade-grown tea leaves. The tea bushes are covered for several weeks before harvesting, which slows down the growth of the leaves and increases their chlorophyll content, resulting in a sweeter and more delicate flavor.
The name Gyokuro means "jade dew" in Japanese, and refers to the pale green color and lustrous appearance of the tea leaves. The flavor of Gyokuro is complex, with a subtle sweetness, umami (savory) notes, and a smooth, silky texture.
Because of its unique production process and high quality, Gyokuro is one of the most expensive types of Japanese green tea.
The shade-growing process also reduces the bitterness and astringency of the tea, resulting in a sweeter, more mellow taste. Gyokuro is typically brewed at lower temperatures than other green teas to bring out its delicate flavor and aroma.
This tea is one of the most valued products of the Nippon islands. It is picked by hand in specially shaded fields, guaranteeing a rare experience.
