Handpicked Gyokuro, as the name suggest, it's manually handpicked by tea expert. Only the highest quality tea leaves are selected to produce this Gyokuro. This Gyokuro is manually processed by tea experts.

Gyokuro is the highest grade of green tea in Japanese green teas. About 20 days before harvest, tea leaves are covered with clothes to avoid direct sunlight. This process reduce the astringency and increase the umami sweetness. This process is same as Matcha tea leaves. Therefore Matcha and Gyokuro has very good aroma, sweetness and low bitterness.

Beautiful green leaves which gives a full-bodied, potato-like umami flavour when soaked in 60-degrees water. The dried leaves themselves smell incredibly vegetal and sweet.My first time trying Gyokuro, and it is beautiful albeit pricey.I made it the standard Japanese way - 8g per 100ml of water. Ouch for my wallet.

I am not a good tea drinker, but this Gyokuro is very good in my opinion. I once bought cheap Gyokuro from local retail shop and it taste like Sencha. This handpicked Gyokuro has a very special taste which I think it should be the "umami" many are talking about.One suggestion is to include a brewing instructions along with the product.
