A premium-grade green tea from the Uji Valley characterised by a rich and creamy mouthfeel.
Gyokuro (meaning “jade dew”) is shade-grown for extra flavour. It combines stems and leaves for a savoury/sweet taste redolent of the sea air. If there’s one tea out there that makes you say “umami”, this premium Gyokuro green tea is it!
Brewing & Enjoying New Season Gyokuro
To brew gyokuro green tea as it should be brewed, the water must be well below boiling point.
In a small teapot, steep 3 grams at 60 degrees Celsius for up to 2 minutes. The second steeping can be shorter (try 30 seconds), and the third longer again (90 seconds). Kyusu teapots or hobin teapots are the traditional choices for brewing gyokuro green tea.
This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried
Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!
Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
This tea has a fabulous earthiness and funkiness. But really it's like a wine that needs to be cellared for a few years. Good Puer aged for a few years is tea like no other. The roasted earthy notes will intensify and soften over time.
The Bordeaux of teas...Love that description
As someone who doesn't normally drink black tea, this tea would convert me.Naturally malty and even creamy, something I haven't tasted before in a black tea.Fantastic flavour and would match brilliantly with milk and as a base for a chai tea.
As someone who loves the intense flavour of straight matcha and traditional genmaicha, I thought this blend was a bit odd just from reading the description.But after trying it wow. You get the traditional genmaicha flavour but the added dusting of matcha dials up the flavour intensity without overpowering it. Great for those whom matcha is a bit too overpowering and want something more for everyday drinking.
