Up near the border of Bhutan and the Manas National Park in the rain-shadow of the Himalayas, the Doomni Tea Estate in Assam has been developing and perfecting this exceptional white tea over the past few years.

Its taste is both incredibly rich and delicate, with scents of rainforest canopy, moist evergreens, sweet citruses and exotic fruits, all melting in a sumptuous honey mouth-feel, like drinking hydromel. Each steeping gives a renewed experience.

This multi award-winning Gyokuro is very representative of shade teas from the Uji region. Three weeks before the manual harvest, the tea bushes are covered and up to 85% of the sun’s rays are filtered out to help create what the Japanese refer to as the “taste of the shade”. The result is a highly aromatic and complex tasting tea that contains very little tannins. The vegetal character evokes marine flavours of salt and iodine (fresh wakame seeweed) and green vegetable (spinach, swiss chard, and cooked celery) notes. The soft green liquor is bright and has a lingering delicate and herbaceous taste.

Three weeks before hand harvesting, shade structures which filter out up to 90% of sunlight are placed over the tea to develop what is commonly called in Japan "the taste of the shadows" . The result is a tea weak in tannins, highly complex and aromatic. Extra smooth by virtue of its velvety texture and delicate fragrances of snow peas, water chestnuts and corn salad, this tea, with leaves of intense emerald green, will delight you with its finesse and depth. The quintessence of Japanese teas.
