Mountain Grown Yame Gyokuro


To make this premium gyokuro, a shelf is built over the tea bushes  and straw woven with straw is spread over the entire tea fields. This method is considered one of the traditional shading methods to make gyokuro and is quite rare these days! After being shaded for 20 days, the tea leaves are harvested. By shading for a long period of time (which is a typical process to make gyokuro), the growth of catechin which creates the bitter taste in tea is suppressed and the umami and richness will be emphasized. 

To steep this tea, prepare your hot water (or cool off to) 50 ℃ so that the tea leaves are soaked and wait for 2 minutes. Please enjoy the traditional taste and aroma that spreads in your mouth.
