GRAND CRU Gyokuro Okabe (bag of 50 teabags)Jade Dew
Here is a "Precious Dew" from the Shizuoka region in Japan produced from the Samidori cultivar, often used to make Gyokuro and Matcha.
The dry leaves display the characteristic depth of shade-grown teas, with their dark hue and intoxicating smell of raspberry.
The delicately sharp liquor is smooth and is accompanied by vegetable accents of spinach and sunflower seed. Exquisite!
Each bag contains 50 teabags made entirely of plant based fibres, all materials approved by the strictest food industry regulations (FDA/EU). No nylon is used whatsoever.
With their pyramid shape, these compostable bags give your leaves all the necessary space to steep freely and release their freshness into your cup.
