Description

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

Origin: Shizuoka, Japan

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

    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.
