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.

To learn more about this tea, see the article devoted to it in our tea tasters blog.
