Currently one of our very highest quality gyokuro green teas (the unsolicited reviews speaks for themselves). We obtain Uji Gyokuro "Kamejirushi" from a rather famous, centuries old firm in Uji City, near Kyoto.  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! 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: How to Brew Gyokuro - Step-by-Step Instructions!

    I love this green tea as an every day go to in the morning. I brew this at 165 degrees for 3.25 minutes. It makes the perfect cup of tea to start my day.

    A truly spectacular gyokuro. I come back and order this tea every year on special occasions, and use 2 grams/30ml, 3 minute infusion at 135f. It yields that characteristic deep and mellow gyokuro taste which, in my opinion, is above the competition. I would not recommend infusing this at just 1g/30ml, you will be selling this particular high-end tea short.

    This is our favorite tea of all the gyokuros. Important to follow directions to make sure water is not to hot and brewing time is not too long, but otherwise tastes wonderful and can be brewed up to six times.

    Tricky to brew. I really should order a shiboridashi teapot to get it just right. Wonderful taste! I love the umami in this. It tastes exactly like my favorite matcha. I wish I could drink this everyday.

    I drink a variety of green teas with gyokuro being a personal favorite.  I brewed this tea in the traditional manner, using a hohin teapot and filtered water at 60C. 

    This particular gyokuro is very subtle, with a forward umami flavor, and very little grassy or bitter notes.  After a few sips you begin to get hints of oceanic notes and the finish is sweet.

    This is not the most intense gyokuro, but it is among the most fragrant and least bitter.
