Gyokuro (Loose - 50 g)

- +

A high-end, handpicked tea from the Yame region which is famous for top quality gyokuro. Picked once a year from the best leaves, this dento-hon-gyokuro is grown using the traditional harvesting style and tools. Concentrated, rich, complex “umami” flavor. This unique delicious tea balances a slight bitterness and sweetness with an asparagus-like flavor and soup stock consistency and texture. This is the espresso of green tea.
