UMAMI URGE Gyokuro Green Tea (50 g)

$33.00 $24.75

This Gyokuro is shade-grown for a rich, satisfying umami flavour unique to Japanese teas

Product Description

Rich and creamy, this Gyokuro green tea from the Uji Valley 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 Japanese green tea out there that can satisfy an “umami” urge, this premium Gyokuro is it!

Brewing & Enjoying Umami Urge Gyokuro Green Tea

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.

Oolong love you long time

This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.

We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.

I recently bought this via special order.The earthy aroma and complexity of flavour is something I've never tasted before in a tea.Just magnificent.

It is indeed a wonderful tea. Thanks for the glowing review Konrad!

MATCHA (Unkaku: ‘Crane in the Clouds’)

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.

The Bordeaux of teas

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.
