Description

Yame Gyokuro Grade 1 is a high quality first flush Gyokuro grown in Yame, Japan. Yame is one of the most important Gyokuro growing regions in Japan, it produces more than half of all Gyokuro teas! Our Yame Gyokuro Grade 1 is treated as a luxury tea for a special occasion. Gyokuro is specialty Japanese tea that is shaded for approximately three weeks. Before harvest the tea trees are covered using old traditional methods with special bamboo tents. Shading produces tea that is theanine-rich, and very aromatic and produces a liquor that is a beautiful shade of green; the flavor is uniquely sweet and delicate, without any astringency!

Our high quality Yame Gyokuro Grade 1 is treated as a luxury for a special occasion because of its rarity and extraordinary taste, aroma and complex characteristics. This is not your every day tea but a tea that should be celebrated with!

This is how to do it:
1-1.5 TSP or 1 BAG
200ml
80°C
1.5 - 2 min

[FR] Nous adorons les thés verts japonais. Celui-ci est est d’une très grande qualité. L’odeur qui émane du sac donne le goût d’en manger. L’odeur se poursuit pendant l’infusion. Le goût est caractéristique du Gyokuro, sans amertume et avec une bonne longueur en bouche.

Un thé vert remarquable!

My favorite green tea out of all the ones I've had. It's got lots of grassy alfalfa flavor, with umami theanine aftertaste. Very light and smooth.

One of the highest quality teas I have ever tasted, definitely top shelf grade- clean marine kelp/seaweed with fresh vegetal notes and an intense umami savory punch. Well worth the expense , very uplifting, positive tea :)

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.
