Gyokuro Misho

Available in Tin, Zip Foil Bags, Tea Bags

Gyokuro is translated as “dew drop” and it is the highest grade of Japanese loose green tea. In contrast to making unshaded Sencha, the tea plant is shaded for about two to three weeks prior the harvest during which fresh spring tea leaves develop a distinctive rich flavor and sweet smell. After the harvest the leaves are processed with great care, the result of which is a tea of unique  taste and beauty. Due to the level of care and attention needed to produce Gyokuro it is a rather rare tea – less than 1 percent of all tea made in Japan is Gyokuro.

Gyokuro Misho is produced in a city of Uji, which is considered the birthplace of Gyokuro tea dated back 1835. Uji is a city in the prefecture of Kyoto, south of Kyoto city. Kyoto Prefecture has a mountainous terrain which makes most of tea farming and harvesting manual. Despite of being world-famous as a cradle of premium Japanese Green tea, only 4% of Japanese tea is made in Kyoto.

Gyokuro Misho has an vibrantly pale emerald color, intense yet elegant sweet aromas and flavors, silky mouthfeel and long balanced refreshing finish. Heavenly delicious tea!
