Gyokuro is a premium Japanese green tea containing high amounts of umami. Shaded from the sun for 20 days to increase the levels of chlorophyl and the amino acid L-theanine.
It's the second time I'm buying the organic gyokuro and as before, I was not disappointed. It's a smooth but full-bodied blend, perfect for teatime but also for a gentler start in the morning than the sencha or the matcha. Definitely recommended, superb quality as is the case with all Ocha and Co teas I've been buying for the last 4 years.
Wonderful flavours and is one of my favourite teas ever.
I have purchased 2 kilos of this day over the past few years. It is exceptional quality like I buy from a high end tea shop in the Netherlands. Shipping is also very fast and I like that the tea is available in 100 gram vacuum sealed packaging so it stays very fresh. I have been drinking organic Gyokuro green tea for more than 15 years -- I have it every morning - a few cups instead of coffee. Amazing tea and amazing quality!
Really good tea, deep flavour, don’t need too much to make a whole pot. Plenty of umami and freshly cut grass. I just wish it was a little cheaper…
