Gyokuro means “Jade Dew” and is a fine Japanese green tea variety that is shaded for 20 days before harvesting in order to increase the chlorophyll in the leaves. This method of shading produces a unique, deep and sweet cup of amino acid rich green tea. However, our Gyokuro Gokou was carefully shaded for an extended 30 days before harvesting, totaling 50 days of shading. Once steeped, the vibrant jade liquor has a balanced buttery umami taste with notes of fresh cut grass, and light seaweed.
