One of the main characteristics of Gyokuro tea lies in the method of growing its leaves which are shaded about 20 days before harvesting. With this technique the amino acids in the leaves are increased, and the tea has a sweeter, and less astringent taste. Its taste has floral notes of the forest and sweet honey. The umami also stands out

This tea is rich in vitamins and low in tannin, and the very high amount of L-theanine makes it an effective natural antidepressant. It also contributes to the treatment of heart problems, diabetes and digestive disorders, stimulates a sense of calm and promotes rest.

Gyokuro is an intense and refined Japanese green tea.

It is grown in Japan, particularly in the south, where the climatic conditions are ideal for growing organic green tea. The dense fog and the important changes in temperature represent very favorable climatic factors for the cultivation of green tea.

Gyokuro has green leaves with marine shades, due to the presence of chlorophyll, and with a characteristic needle shape.

It is one of the finest teas in the world, in fact, it is also called “precious dew” or “jade dew”.
The infusion of Gyokuro tea has a pale dewy, slightly cloudy yellow-green color and has a strong umami taste and a rich aroma.

Characterized at first by vegetal notes, soft in the mouth and slightly sweet. Then you feel the freshness of slightly more sour and astringent notes, with an almost imperceptible hint of bitterness on the finish.
