Shaded organic Japanese Gyokuro green tea from the cultivar Saemidori (cross of the cultivars Yabukita and Asatsuyu).
This cultivar produces sweet teas, round in the mouth, without astringency, with honeyed notes and cooked vegetables (zucchini).

Terroir: Kagoshima, volcanic and mountainous terrain of southern Japan.
Harvest: Spring 2023
Drying: light (asamushi)
Organic certification: JAS

The Gyokuro is what is called a shaded tea: the tea trees are covered with a fabric during the 3 weeks before the harvest. This step removes 90% of sunlight and forces the tea tree to feed deeply in the soil. It develops an incredible sweetness and umami flavor.

Our gyokuro is sold exclusively in a bag of 50g zipped and hermetic.

All our Japanese teas are imported by plane and kept in refrigerators at 4°C in France.
