京都 玉露


Origin: Kyoto

Gyokuro is the finest quality tea, produced by shading the tea crop from direct sunlight as the new buds appear in the spring. By shading the crop, the sweet, deep umami flavor of tea concentrates in the tea leaves without bitter tannins forming. Infused at a low temperature, the sweetness and rich flavor of great tea unfolds across the palate from the syrup-like tea liquor characteristic of gyokuro.
