Gyokuro is a premium Japanese green tea containing high amounts of umami. Shaded from the sun for 20 days to increase the levels of chlorophyl and the amino acid L-theanine.
This is the freshest tea I've been able to get here in the US. It is identical to the smell and taste of teas I've had in high-end Sushi restaurants in Osaka and Tokyo.
This is the second time I order tea from this company. And I have yet to be disappointed. The shipping was expedient and the product is absolutely breathtaking. Ever since I tasted this specific kind of tea, I haven't been able to drink regular store-bought tea with the same gusto. Honestly, this is one of the few luxuries I allow myself- and I have no shame about it. Delicious and worth a try!
Excellent quality, amazing price.
The order came in the next day! The tea is priced very reasonably. The quality of the leaves is superb. The sweet smell the deep green collor . The cup of tea was perfect.
While Ocha's organic gyokuro is pretty good, it's not as sweet or as flavorful as another imported gyokuro I order. However, you cannot dismiss Ocha's shipping time. Unbelievable. I will be ordering again and trying a different tea. Thank you!
