Gyokuro "Jade Dew" 1 oz

Starting at: $5.95

This superior grade, "nurtured" tea is one of Japan's finest.

During the budding stage when the tender leaves begin sprouting the entire garden is covered with a special sheer curtain. This shading process increases the chlorophyll content of the leaves, turning them a dark green, almost purplish color while reducing tannins. When harvested, these tender buds are plucked at peak perfection, steamed and then hand rolled into long, thin, needle-like, shiny leaves. Infusion of this tea embodies a fresh, vivid green, sweet, vegetal brew. If you are considering only one Japanese tea for your collection, this is the one. Go on... try it.

NOTE: Infuse 1.5 minutes at 120°.
