Yame Gyokuro

Score: 4.78. Votes: 23

A "select", high quality first-flush gyokuro grown in Yame, Japan. Over 50% of all gyokuro grown in Japan comes from Yame. We probably priced Yame Gyokuro a little too low, this tea is priced at a bargain for what it is and which customer reviews seem to confirm. 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! Make sure to read our brewing instructions, as it is brewed differently than sencha: How to Brew Gyokuro - Step-by-Step Instructions!

Available in 100gm packages.

    Clean gyokuro. Very fresh. On the lighter side though, and I'm more of a fan of stronger gyokuro. Will probably hunt for another one. I had read great things about Yame gyokuro. It was still worth the try I think.

    Excellent quality, slightly grassy, yet crisp and refreshing.

    Great introduction to Gyokuro! I love it. It's a great tea and has a bold flavor. Brew time and temperature is tricky but when you get it right, delicious! This little buzz that I get from this tea is nice an clear. 1 tsp seems to be about the right amount where I feel energized but not jittery. I definitely recommend this tea if you like Gyokuro and are looking for a descent priced option.

    Exceptional tea. As previously stated, brewing can be tricky. It is, however, well worth the effort

    This gyokuro quickly becomes my favorite tea. I've order total 3 bags already and don't have intend to stop ordering it :) It is really good to keep my mind clear and makes me feel energized when I need it. I swear somehow it even smell tiny slightly bit floral to me... lol. Over all this is a great tea!

    This is an extremely satisfying gyokuro. The aroma, upon opening the package is quite nice. Brewing properly is a bit tricky but when it all comes together this tea does not disappoint.

    I love this gyokuro a lot! I started with Kamejirushi, which is very highly rated, but found this to be even more to my liking. I'm able to get three delicious infusions from it.

    I have gyokuro or matcha every morning to get the nutrients of an ingested tea. Not only is this a nice drinking tea, it is also very nice for eating with a little Tamari sauce. Yame is a quality tea at a good price point for daily drinking. I recently tried 7 gyokuros from different vendors and the two purchased from O-Cha are my favourites (This one and their Uji Gyokuro "Kamejirushi")
