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!

    Has a distinct umami flavour which is absolutely lovely! Gyokuro has become my morning staple cup of tea.

    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.

    Amazing gyokuro. This tea has a sweet umami and great fragrance. The tea arrived timely, and the quality is fresh. I enjoy this fine, delicate tea as a pleasant way to relax.

    Wonderful gyokuro tea with all the boldness you expect and all the complexity that you hope for. Both exquisite and approachable, truly amazing.

    Top quality gyokuro. Greener and fresher appearing than my former favorite brand. Wonderful deep green hue with umami and aroma with no bitterness. Thank you for the terrific tea and education on correct steeping time and temperature.

    I’ve ordered a few times now from Senbird. I’ve enjoyed the freshness of the tea (vacuum packed Gyokuro, Fukamushi sencha, and hojicha). I will definitely continue to order from this company.

    Lovely flavor. Amazing gyokuro with stellar customer service. The quality for the price is second-to-none.

    Wonderful to be able to have organic gyokuro. I thought I would have to get this in Japan. A little pricey but worth it

    This is my first time trying gyokuro. It exceeded my expectations. Will definitely order again. The shipping was very fast; it arrived earlier than expected.

    Hello! This type of gyokuro green tea was recommended to me and it is supposed to be very beneficial for your health. It is on the pricier side, but supposed to be a high quality product among the various green teas. And I love this Gyokuro tea! It has a wonderful taste and I enjoy hot or cold. Highly recommend it!!

    A little bitter and grassy for me, but I think I have to acquire a taste.

    The taste is sublime. I have tried many different high quality green teas while living Japan. I’m glad I found Senbird as they bring back great memories.

    Highest quality gyokuro I’ve ever ordered online, very impressed.

    Their organic Gyokuro is delicious and quality. I was very happy with my purchase and plan to order again. While I love this gyokuro, I plan on trying out the other gyokuros they have.

    One of the best Gyokuro green teas I’ve ever had. I love the heavy umami taste.

    This is my second time ordering the Gyokuro tea from Senbird and I am not disappointed! Very good quality tea at a very reasonable price.

    I’m a long time user of Gyokuro green tea and am always looking for different brands to try. I was pleasantly surprised by the Senbird Gyokuro. It comes in a vacuum packed pouch which, upon opening, provides a very fresh cut greens aroma. I enjoyed the tea. It has a nice veggie taste with just a touch of sweetness. It is on my list of brands to come back to in the future.

    This gyokuro is wonderful, the package arrived well packed and on time. I will be ordering again (and again…)

    I’m a first-time buyer and I find myself completely satisfied with Senbird. I tried this gyokuro and matcha and both were fabulous!

    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.

    Authentic. One of the most authentic gyokuro you find in the market. Very vivid green color is so beautiful. I can feel high in caffeine as it stayed me up all night.
