Our Hibi Uji Gyokuro is grown and produced in Uji; a city on the southern outskirts of the city of Kyoto, in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. Gyokuro is a Japanese green tea variety that is shaded for a minimum of two weeks before harvesting; this naturally increases the levels of chlorophyll in the leaf- which produces a distinctive umami-rich cup of green tea!

Our Hibi Uji Gyokuro (meaning “Daily Gyokuro” in Japanese) is an excellent high-quality, budget-friendly choice for Japanese tea lovers! Hibi Uji Gyokuro infuses a vibrant green liquor that is thick, grassy, and has a slight astringency. Its flavor is bolder than our highest quality Gyokuro varieties, making a great daily choice. Hibi Uji Gyokuro is wonderful with meals, and also makes an excellent iced green tea!

Try multiple infusions to fully explore the fullness our Hibi Uji Gyokuro has to offer! 楽しい たのしい Tanoshii (enjoy!).

I compared 3 similarly priced Gyokuro varieties: Gyokuro Ureshinocha, Gyokuro Premier, and Yame Gyokura Grade 1. I found the Gyokuro Premier and Yame Gyokuro Grade 1 to be indistinguishable from each other. Both of these varieties yielded tea with a richer and better flavor than Gyokuro Ureshinocha. In all case, I heated 8 oz of water to 130F and steeped with 1 tsp of tea leaves for 1 minute.

J'adore ce thé. Très doux et à la fois goûteux. Un beau vert de qualité. Il fait parti de mes thés verts préféré.

I'm quite taken with its delicate grassy fragrance the pretty colour of the infusion. I now have several teas in my collection, but it's the one I reach for the most.
