By popular demand. It has taken us 2 years to get this tea to market but here it is. 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.
Superb mellow taste! Great accompaniment to my morning meditation.
The Gyukoro and green tea's I got are really great quality!
I was a loyal Tevana Gyokuro tea drinker for a number of years and then they closed the stores. I bought as much as I could find before they closed and then went in search of my favorite tea. I was willing to try another company and with luck I found Ocha and Co. I have been totally happy with the tea and with the prompt delivery. The tea is wonderful and the packaging keeps it very fresh but I go through it pretty fast because I love it so much. I have become a loyal customer!
I love green tea - however my home collection has been limited to what I can find at the grocery store. The Ocha & Co. tea has brought by home tea options to a completely new level and I will not be going back.
This gyokuro was probably the best tea I've ever had. The taste was smooth with lots of umami, and after about 4 infusions I noticed its awesome effects. It gives you clear, focused, calm energy which lasted pretty much the entire day. I felt a definite sense of euphoria after drinking it. I did the first infusion at room temp for 7 min, the 2nd infusion @120F for 2.5 min, 3rd infusion at the same temp but for 3 min, and the 4th infusion @160F for 2.5 min.
