Uji Gyokuro "Yume no Uki-hashi" - The highest grade of gyokuro sold from Japan's oldest continuously operating tea shop. O-Cha.com is honored to offer this superb green tea supplied to us from the Tsuen family who have operated their teashop from same location on the banks of the Uji river since 1160.

A very high quality, first-flush gyokuro, this green tea is hand picked and is a proprietary blend of "Gokou" and "Yabukita" breeds of green tea, with the "Gokou" being prominent. Gyokuro is shade grown before harvesting, giving it a greener color and sweeter taste. Once you learn to make it properly, you wil be hooked for life! Since this is a connoisseur grade of gyokuro and is not considered a beginner's green tea, make sure to read our brewing instructions as it is brewed differently than sencha.

Available in 100g packaging.

Very distinct Gyokuro, and by far the strongest I've ever had. The taste profile is very intense, with a smooth, earthy aftertaste. Be careful not to steep too long, especially in the first brew. Can get three or more good steeps out of each brew.

Advantages: Easy on the stomach, energizing, great taste

Disadvantages: None if brewed correctly, VERY bitter when oversteeped!

This gyokuro gives a very intense first steep, the most intense I have gotten so far with any gyokuro. The second and third steeps are less intense though which makes me prefer the Kame Giru Shi.
If you really like gyokuro, you should try it.
