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.
Great to find this organic certified. Rather grassy aroma, very nice color. Be cautious of amount used-this expands considerably. 2nd steeping still flavorful without bitterness.
Imported Japanese organic green teas are pricey but Ocha & Co's teas are reasonably priced. The tea flavor per the instruction may be weak for some. Put more (2 - 4 g) tea as your taste sees fit. I like it enough to continue to order.
Perfect green tea
Currently my favourite gyokuro.
Extremely rich in umami such that it smells and tastes like broth.
Ordering process was easy, and shipping was fast.
Such wonderful tea! I’ve only had such nice tea in Japan and am so happy to have found this. The packaging was so well done and the gyikuro is wonderful. i’m enjoying the lower steep temperature and process. Haven’t tried the reicha yet as it’s been cool here this week but looking forward to it. Thank you for sharing such nice products.
