Uji Gyokuro "Tsuru-jirushi" - One of our very our highest quality gyokuro, we offer this gyokuro in 50 gram packages. From the same supplier as our already popular Gyokuro "Kame-Jirushi", this is absolutely the highest quality gyokuro we can obtain from this centuries old Uji firm. Shade grown before harvesting, it has a greener color and sweeter taste.

Once you learn to make it properly, you wil be hooked for life! As this is an expensive, high quality green tea be sure to read our gyokuro brewing instructions carefully as it is brewed differently than sencha.

Available in 50gm package.

A very good Gyokuro certainly worth trying. It seemes somewhat more delicate than other gyokuros, possibly adequate for those who like a less greeny/spinachy taste to their gyokuro. however it does posses a pleasant green taste and a long lasting clean tannin feel in the mouth. An enjoyable and very good tea, hardish to brew as you would expect.

I've drunk my last cup of this superb gyokuro and like every sip of this tea. I really cant find better gyokuro than this.
I liked it more than Kame Jirushi.

This site has fantastic gyokuro in general, so when I say that the Tsuru-Jiru-Shi is the best that really means something. This tea is absolutely stunning in every way. The leaf lets off a fantastic aroma and the brew packs a serious punch, an explosion

Advantages: The best Gyokuro I have ever had.

Excellent! Sweeter and clearer than the Kame Jiru Shi, my favorite gyokuro so far. I will now have to alternate between both I guess. The price is evidently quite high, less expensive than a good bottle of Champagne though.
Not difficult at all to brew if you keep to parameters.
