Uji Gyokuro Yume no Ukihashi


Score: 5.00. Votes: 5

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.

Uji Gyokuro "Yume no Uki-hashi" is 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.

    This tea is extremely fresh and makes a fabulous hot tea. Usually, I like my green teas hot and I like to make my black teas into iced tea. I was amazed at how rich and non-stringent this one tasted. I am very satisfied! Thanks again!

    This is a beautiful Gyokuro. Nice grassy tones and a pleasant after taste that lingers lovingly on the tongue. On my first time I steeped it 4 times, but it still tastes wonderful after being steeped 5 times.

    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.

    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.
