Gyokuro OkabeJade Dew
Here is a "Precious Dew" from the Shizuoka region 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!

Grown and processed in the region of Uji in Japan, this 'shade-tea' is of great finesse. Shade structures which block up to 70% of the light are placed over the tea plants two weeks before harvest in order to soften the leaves and increase the chlorophyll concentration. Its infusion, vegetal in character, is delicately sweet and velvety. Notes of spinach, peas and cashew blend leaving a persistent pleasantly marine aftertaste.
Produced by Asami Ito, the only woman producer in Shizuoka, this Kabusecha Surugawase shows an incredible vitamin concentration, like only the richest Japanese teas can offer. Dense bright green liquor promises an intense aromatic experience.
The fine plucking of this tea from Hunan offers a harmonious mix of young leaf buds. The infusion freely releases notes of green vegetables and wild flowers. The pale green liquor, slightly cloudy, is lively and smooth. A generous tea of well balanced finesse.
