Supreme Gyokuro tea from Kyoto

This is one of the highest-quality green tea produced in Inooka, Kyotanabe city, Kyoto.
There are a lot of people who have never drunk Gyokuro but heard the name of it or got interested in try drinking it lately.
Now the literature indicates how people in the past initially drank Gyokuro tea, a kind of Japanese green tea. Soseki Natsume, a renowned novelist in the Meiji era, wrote “Kusamakura” or Three-Cornered World in 1906. In these novels, there is a scene where an artist, a protagonist is served a cup of green tea by an old man.

”The old gentleman nods as he lifts the little red clay teapot and lets the precious greenish-amber liquid trickle two or three drops at a time into the teacups.
I am pleasantly aware of its elegant aroma gently invading my nostrils.”

Moreover, this picture goes to the next scene where a detailed description of the taste of green tea was given.
These famous lines are quoted repeatedly in the mass media.

”I bring the raised cup directly to my lips. A connoisseur with time on his hands will elegantly taste this rich, delicately sweet liquid, ripened in the precise temperature of the hot water, by letting it run one drop at a time onto the tip of the tongue. Most people believe that tea is to be drunk, but that is a mistake. If you drop it gently onto the tongue and let the pure liquid dissipate in your mouth, almost none of it remains for you to swallow. Rather, the exquisite fragrance travels down to permeate the regions of the stomach. Using the teeth on solid food is vulgar, while mere water is insipid. The best green tea, on the other hand, surpasses fresh water in its delicate, rich warmth, yet lacks the firmness of more solid substances that tire the jaw. Tea is, in fact, a marvelous drink. To those who spurn it on the grounds of insomnia, I say that it’s better to be deprived of sleep than of tea.”

And the people who produce this marvelous Gyokuro are tea blenders in Uji called “Chashi.”
There are a variety of tea leaves for Japanese green tea just like grapes for wine. Each tea leaf has its feature, but the taste and fragrance of even the same type of tea leaves become different each year because the state of the soil, the way of growing and the weather change every year.
They cannot do anything to them because those are the blessings of natures. So, Chashi examines thousands of tea leaves and selects some carefully, and after that, they blend selected tea leaves. This process keeps the same taste and fragrance and offers you the unchangeable high-quality green tea all the time. The tea produced with only one kind of tea leaf cannot give you this rich taste. When you try it, you will enjoy its unique fragrance and flavorful taste of the highest-quality green tea “Gyokuro” which skilled and experienced “Chashi” in Uji blended. Have a wonderful time with this "Gyokuro” tea.
