Unique in Japan in the world of tea, the Gyokuro (Precious Dew) style is the result of a process to create shade for the tea plants for a few weeks. The deprivation of light creates more difficult conditions for the plants whose molecular structure changes to make room for sugars, amino acids and aromatic compounds. The leaves will offer a less bitter liquor.
