Product Description

Gyokuro tea is grown beneath shading, cutting out some 85% of the sunlight. This allows the leaves to mature without obtaining bitterness. The results is an ultra delicate green tea with an extremely sweet taste profile.

Our Imperial Gyokuro is grown beneath traditional, handmade bamboo and/or straw shading. The moisture that drips from this natural shading flavors the tea — a return to the past with this gourmet tea. The most premium gyokuro tea the Kurihara family offers is produced on a specific field that has seems to have the ideal soil composition, sunlight exposure, and surround mirco-climate. After processing tea leaves from this field in our factory, we decided not to blend it with other fields, and keep it as a single field tea.

Steeping Notes

Steeping gyokuro tea delicately
We highly recommend starting with the gyokuro steeping technique for the first steep, then move on to the warm water steeping technique or the standard technique for the 2nd - 4th steeps.
Tea Salad!
And, when you're done, don't throw away the leaves. They become soft and tender, lacking bitterness -- perfect as a tea leaf salad!
