Description

Gyokuro Premier also known as Jade Dew, is the absolutely highest grade of Japanese green tea! Cherished and sought after by tea connoisseurs all over the world, Gyokuro is a rare Japanese green tea variety that is shaded for a minimum of two weeks before harvesting; this will naturally boost the levels of chlorophyll in the leaf- which produces a unique, deep, and sweet cup of green tea! Organically grown Gyukuro Premier of this quality is rarely exported, and rather difficult to buy, we here at Tealyra have gone to great lengths to procure for your pleasure!

Harvested just once annually during the spring, our shade grown Gyrokuro’s increased levels of chlorophyll add depth, flavor, color and complexity to the tea, and significantly increases its nutritional content as well. Our Gyokuro Premier has a silken mouthfeel, it is rich, deep in color and flavor, is slightly buttery and savory.

We highly recommend that you pay special attention to the water temperature and steeping time; it is important to never use boiling water!

Quality    *****
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.

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.
