Gyokuro Wakayama

Japan

  • The best of the best. Translated as "Jewel Dew," this organically cultivated, hand-made tea is regarded as one of the finest in Japan. Gyokuro tea leaves are shaded from the sun for weeks before harvesting. The resulting emerald green tea leaves produce a highly complex, yet pefectly balanced, cup with subtle hints of sweet grass. This particular variety, grown in a garden in the Wakayama district south of Osaka, is the best we've tasted. Note that Gyokuro tea should steep at lower temperatures than typical green teas. Quantities are very limited.
