shincha gyokuro
Gyokuro Shincha 2022 is a lively first harvest of the year from the Shizouka foothills of Mount Fuji. Vibrant dry leaf aroma reminds one of fresh green olives on the tree, and whispers of sweet peas and hints of floral. In the cup, it is complex and riveting. Initially, it offers floral notes, and a soft savory note, but as it cools more nuances reveal themselves. Sifting through the layers of this tea, you’ll find umami-nutty notes, sweet sugar snap pea greenness, hints of lily-of-the-valley floral on the back palate – and so much more. Bring a fresh palate and time to sip this exceptional spring tea.

Gyokuro, which means 'jade dew', is one of Japan's most renowned and expensive teas. In the Japanese tea tradition, the texture of the tea itself is extremely important. At the end of the tea making process, the tea master will carefully blend in tiny, broken up 'tea dust' to give the finished cup more body and richness. You can actually see these particles when you scoop out your tea. You also see them in your cup - many fine Japanese greens have a lovely, slightly cloudy appearance. This contributes to the 'umami' of the tea.

The sun-deprived leaves are higher in chlorophyll, which explains their vivid green color. They're also higher in amino acids, most notably L-theanine, which accounts for the perfectly smooth, rich and soft flavor. Our fine Gyokuro green tea produces a deeply sweet aroma of freshly buttered greens and seaweed, with no grassiness or harshness. Think of tender new grass just sprouting in the spring. Soft on the palate with a balanced, delicate finish. Energizing and soothing cup of tea.
