Origin: Japan, Uji, Kyoto Prefecture

Flavor: Vibrant, Grassy, Umami

Gyokuro is a Japanese green tea variety that is shaded for a minimum of two weeks before harvesting.  This naturally increases the levels of chlorophyll in the leaf, which produces a distinctive umami-rich cup of green tea!  Our Hibi Gyokuro, Daily Gyokuro, is an excellent high-quality, budget-friendly choice for Japanese tea lovers! Hibi Gyokuro infuses a vibrant green liquor that is thick, grassy, and has a slight astringency. Its flavor is bolder than other higher quality Gyokuro varieties, making a great daily choice.

Tea shipped in our Teas New Jersey storage tins can remain stored in their tins for long periods of time.  Tea leaves are best stored in dry, dark containers with little air and safe from odors.  Our tins are small and compact with little space for air to sit.  They are great sizes for storing and stacking.  We recommend purchasing tea in one of our tins if you do not have storage that fits the above qualifications.  However, if you have storage and are ready for a larger amount of tea, you might consider selecting our 3oz pouch option, which you could transfer to a tin upon receiving.
