Mikado means emperor, which is emblematic of this incredibly smooth Hon Gyokuro shade-grown green tea. In fact, these tea leaves are from Asahina, Shizuoka, a prefecture that boasts producing some of the most high quality, distinct Gyokuro with a unique flavor that differs from your standard shade-grown green tea. Mikado Gyokuro green tea is genuinely sweet with a savory, umami taste that carries notes of seaweed.

    This is a fantastic green tea. It has a nice bit of sweetness to it, with a lots of umami that is typical of high quality gyokuro. I steep mine in a small pre-warmed tetsubin (Japanese iron teapot) with water that is 170 degrees. I let it steep for 2:15-2:30 minutes because I like my tea a tad on the bitter side. This has now become part of my morning ritual, and it’s a great way to start the day. Only problem is that its a bit on the pricey side.
