Description

This Gyokuro shade-grown green tea is an organic Asatsuyu Gyokuro that has a mellow umami flavor and unique sweetness. The unique harvesting process of Gyokuro produces a jade-colored tea that is rich in nutrients. Isshin translates to ‘a moment of connection’, which is inspired by the bond you share when having tea with others. Even in Japan, this variety of green tea is considered rare.

Gyokuro green tea is grown in the shade for 20 days before harvest. This process produces a sweeter and less astringent tea with plenty of health benefits. Shade-grown green tea is especially high in natural caffeine, which may cause white amino acid crystallization to form.

Gyokuro Steeping Instructions

  1. Heat fresh, filtered water until boiled.
  2. Pour water in cups to warm the cup and cool down the water. You can also use a yuzamashi water cooler.
  3. Pour water over tea leaves. Recommended water temperature for Gyokuro is 122°F (50°C)-140°F (60°C). Try different brew times and temperatures to find your preference.
  4. Steep for 1.5-3 minutes. All of our teas can be steeped up to 3 times.

Kooridashi Ice Brewed Gyokuro Instructions

  1. Put the tea leaves in a kyusu or teapot (with a capacity of 500-700ml) without a tea strainer and spread thinly for easy extraction.*Using a tea strainer is not recommended, as the extracted tea may get lukewarm over time at room temperature. If you would like to use a tea strainer, we would encourage you to leave the ice to melt in the fridge overnight.
  2. Put the ice directly on top of the tea leaves. We recommend using ice made from filtered water or mineral water for a more delicious flavor.
  3. Leave the teapot at room temperature for 4 to 5 hours or leave it in the fridge overnight. After the ice melts (it’s okay if the ice is not completely melted), shake it gently to even out the tea extract. Pour into the cup(s). Enjoy the beautiful green color and wonderful umami flavor!

    Magical I’ll be honest I didn’t think that this tea would be as insanely delicious as it is. I look forward to drinking the gyokuro.
    I really know nothing of this type of tea, but whatever, The flavors work so well together it’s like sunshine in a cup. It brightens my mood therefore brightening my day.
    Rarely can I buy tea so expensive to me, but I am finding out that you get what you pay for. Most times.
    I’m super thankful I purchased this tea from THIS company. The packaging of this tea is also perfectly suitable for gifting, if you chose to do so.
    I’m definitely going to purchase this tea again AND I will try other teas from this company IF I CAN ever break away!!

    Lovely mellow taste, highly caffeinated This is my first time trying Gyokuro and I’m very pleased with it! The dried leaves smell earthy and divine, and once brewed, it leaves a delicate/smooth flavor. It’s also very caffeinated, making it the perfect beverage to start off the day with.

    I’ve also tried a few herbal teas from them which I equally highly recommend 🙂

    Amazing tea This Senbird Gyokuro green tea is awesome. This tea is a rare shade grown green tea from Japan and I was not disappointed.
    The color is beautiful, flavor is smooth and has a delightful sweet aftertaste. I would highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in Japanese tea.
    Came super fast, beautifully packaged and I have no complaints. Thanks Senbird, for turning me into a Japanese tea lover!

    My favorite green tea! This gyokuro tea is absolutely wonderful. It has a light, fresh, mellow flavor. Subtle nutty notes, and it’s not bitter at all. Definitely a high quality loose tea. It also comes in a reusable, refillable tin, so it’s eco-friendly! I only wish it came in larger sizes; I have a feeling I’ll get through this very quickly.

    Has a Deep Mystical Property Somehow this particular gyokuro is more than just tea. Sure the flavor and scent are important but the beautiful relaxed feeling the tea produces is the best part.

    Gentle in taste, rich in caffeine Like Senbird’s Hatsuzumi Sencha, the Gyokuro smelled really nice in the tin. Once prepared, drinking the Gyokuro was a gentle experience, as it’s not overpowered in taste. But don’t underestimate it–it’s rich in caffeine, and it definitely provided a nice kick to start to my day.

    Great Tea! I love green tea and have never tried this specific kind before. I love it! The flavor is much more smooth than your average green tea and it has an ever so slight sweeter taste. The packaging was super great and it comes in a reusable airtight tin. Love this Gyokuro

This tea from Senbird Tea is absolutely amazing and smells fresh and has an amazing flavor. Gyokuro yes is one of my new favorite teas and I’ll be buying from Senbird Tea exclusively with this quality and fair price. Highly recommend!

    Great taste & authentic Excellent and authentic gyokuro! This is definitely one of my favorites. It has a delicate but distinct taste and reminds me of all the great tea I had in Japan. Gyokuro is my go-to for a good caffeine boost to keep me going throughout the day. It also comes sealed in a nicely designed tin can, so I don’t have to hunt down a container to keep the tea fresh. Highly recommended!

    Great tasting light green tea! I love this green tea! It’s perfect for when I switch from drinking coffee in the morning to tea in the afternoon. It has a beautiful light flavor with a delicate roasty/toasty quality that reminds me of one of my favorite types of tea, genmaicha. Packaging was top notch, I especially enjoyed that it had specific instructions for the different types of teas – I never really knew each tea needed to be brewed at different temperatures!

    Incredibly Unique I didn’t quite know what to expect with this, but was pleasantly surprised and found myself consistently drinking it over a multitude of more standard domestic teas. There’s a bit of a trick to brewing it, but it’s amazing when its just right. I ordered some for my aunt too, a heavy green tea drinker. She found it a little light for her tastes, but pleasant nonetheless. While the packaging is more than nice enough to be a gift, the taste is too different from typical grocery store tea to buy for someone else. A bit pricy though but I liked it.

    Best Gyokuro tea I’ve found so far It’s been about a week since I got my Gyokuro tea.
    As the seller suggested, I played around with the temperature, but the temperature they told me from answering my question (which was super fast) was the best! Tastes similar or better from the tea back home in Japan.
    Instead of drinking coffee every morning, drinking this and makes helps me focus, get through the day! I love it!
    I gave my friend the Sencha from Senbird, and she’s loving that one too! I’m looking forward to trying different ones.
    Well packaged, loved the customer support, in love with this tea.

    Mmmm Taste great You get a small bag and In my opinion it is a little expensive for the amount of tea you get; but with all that said the taste is really nice, I only drink it twice a day due to the caffeine. I would like to drink it more than that, it taste good with everything thing I eat. with my meals, snacks and watching TV, it’s really that good; But that’s just me. I say, everyone should try this gyokuro!

    Yum! I was pretty pleased with this gyokuro, though the tea leaf-to-water ratio needs to be a little higher for me compared to what is recommended on the label. I use about one tablespoon for about 10-12 ounces. I like a strong tea flow or though. It’s always refreshing to have this after drinking grocery store tea all week, as this is my weekend reserve. Will be buying regularly, moving forward.

    Prevents Sleeping I never thought a Green Tea would do this. But there are times when I don’t sleep at nights, and taking this tea in the morning, really helps me throughout the most part of the day. If I were to drink it every 6 hours, I would never feel sleepy for the whole day. You don’t need a whole lot of tea, just maybe a half of a teaspoon, and that can hold you up for 6 hours. To put your best foot forward, so to speak, I add it with loose black tea, which I brew myself, and make t-h-e perfect mug of tea.

    Healthy & tasteful! We decided to incorporate this particular tea in a regiment to HELP with the fight against skin cancers. We have not used it all just yet, but so far blending it with another herb for tea.

    Freshness Exceeds Expectations The first thing I would like to say up front is that I’m diving back into tea since I am now more financially able to do so. This was one of my personal favorites straight from Senbird. If brewed properly, there will be an abundance of flavors presence. From a strong umami to hints of different types of subtle sweet flavors that leave a pleadant impression on the tongue!

    Amazing tea, especially if you have the money. Personally, I don’t have the funds to purchase this tea on a consistent basis. But, if I could, this would be my go-to. The flavor is so rich that I’m yet to find a tea that compares in strength. If you decide to buy, you’re getting a bang for your buck. Very much worth your time and money.

    Very fresh and rich umami flavors As one of my first gyokuro teas, I have nothing else to compare it with, but yet I can remark that the tea leaves taste like they are freshly picked and carry a unique umami flavor that regular senchas do not have. I recommend it, and I am personally going to also try some of their other teas.

    First taste Gyokuro: A look inside my tea bowl. My initial taste was startling. I wasn’t at all prepared for the umami flavor or the fantastic finish. The tea delivers a calm, mystery and thrill. Each sip brings umami and wonderful mouth-feel, followed by a subtle sweet decay. Then there’s the finish. Gyokuro lingers with a finish that is absolutely bracing!

    I purchased this organic gyokuro and it’samazing. I’ve brewed it both traditionally as well as ice brewed and I enjoyed the versatility of the tea. I especially enjoyed ice brewing because it brings out the umami flavors of this shaded green really well. I highly recommended if you’ve never ice-brewed gyokoru! A bonus is that as this is an organic tea, eating the leaves (as one can do with Gyokoru) is a nice treat and you don’t have to worry as much about what’s on the leaf.

    I highly recommend brewing this gyokuro at a lower temperature. The tea is emerald green packed with umami. Because gyokuro is high in caffeine, I drink this on special days in the morning. I initially brewed this like normal hot tea and was surprised how the color was yellow and didnt taste too good.

    Excellent Gyokuro. Full disclosure: I’m a dedicated tea snob. We drink mostly premium Japanese tea, which is hard to find where we live now. This tea is excellent. A fine Gyokuro, a mellow taste with the right amount of grassiness, great bright green colour. This can compare with some of the better Japanese teas I have found elsewhere and I just ordered a new batch.

Description

This Gyokuro shade-grown green tea is an organic Asatsuyu Gyokuro that has a mellow umami flavor and unique sweetness. The unique harvesting process of Gyokuro produces a jade-colored tea that is rich in nutrients. Isshin translates to ‘a moment of connection’, which is inspired by the bond you share when having tea with others. Even in Japan, this variety of green tea is considered rare.

Gyokuro green tea is grown in the shade for 20 days before harvest. This process produces a sweeter and less astringent tea with plenty of health benefits. Shade-grown green tea is especially high in natural caffeine, which may cause white amino acid crystallization to form.

Gyokuro Steeping Instructions

  1. Heat fresh, filtered water until boiled.
  2. Pour water in cups to warm the cup and cool down the water. You can also use a yuzamashi water cooler.
  3. Pour water over tea leaves. Recommended water temperature for Gyokuro is 122°F (50°C)-140°F (60°C). Try different brew times and temperatures to find your preference.
  4. Steep for 1.5-3 minutes. All of our teas can be steeped up to 3 times.

Kooridashi Ice Brewed Gyokuro Instructions

  1. Put the tea leaves in a kyusu or teapot (with a capacity of 500-700ml) without a tea strainer and spread thinly for easy extraction.*Using a tea strainer is not recommended, as the extracted tea may get lukewarm over time at room temperature. If you would like to use a tea strainer, we would encourage you to leave the ice to melt in the fridge overnight.
  2. Put the ice directly on top of the tea leaves. We recommend using ice made from filtered water or mineral water for a more delicious flavor.
  3. Leave the teapot at room temperature for 4 to 5 hours or leave it in the fridge overnight. After the ice melts (it’s okay if the ice is not completely melted), shake it gently to even out the tea extract. Pour into the cup(s). Enjoy the beautiful green color and wonderful umami flavor!
