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.
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…
I love the to have delivered from Japan. Quality of the tea is very high. I have been regular customer for years and would recommend Ocha & Co Teas if you are tea lover.
The leaves are also good as an appetizer after you use them for brewing
