Uji Premium Gyokuro

Green tea from Kyoto, Japan with a gentle, silky taste

Uji Premium Gyokuro Uji Premium Gyokuro Uji Premium Gyokuro Uji Premium Gyokuro Uji Premium Gyokuro Uji Premium Gyokuro
Extra Flavorful

This Gyokuro is produced in Ujitawara, the southern part of Kyoto. Ujitawara is a well-known tea plantation of Uji-cha (a brand of Japanese green tea). The producers cover this plantation with straw for about 20 days and put extra fragrance into the fresh tea leaves.

We recommend this gourmet tea for those who desire a delicacy. It is a truely premium offer. Its preparation demands attention and patience, but its delicious flavor is a worthy reward for all the care and attention. It is worthwhile to take a whiff of both the steamed, and the still dry tea leaves inside the pre-heated kettle, prior to steeping, as the scent of the tea is absolutely astonishing: like a blend of freshly cut vegetables and ripe fruit. When prepared with cold water, it has a surprisingly sweet, full-bodied flavor, while preparation with high temperature water couples the richness of the tea's flavor with scratchy notes.

Use tepid water with a small Japanese teapot when you make Gyokuro tea. After you pour tepid water into Japanese teapot and wait for a while (2-3 minutes), you can enjoy a rich taste spreading in your mouth.

A lot of people overseas are enjoying the flavor of Japanese tea lately and this high-grade Gyokuro is one of our most popular items.

An excellent, smooth, mellow green tea which I brewed the same way that I do sencha. Dark green leaf with little or no bits or dust. Brewed like sencha it has a nice light green color and no bitterness at all. I did not try brewing this the way gyokuro is normally brewed. Another excellent tea from Sazen!
