Gyokuro (“jade dew”) is considered to be the highest grade of Japanese green tea – it is shaded for 3-4 weeks before harvesting, giving a deep hue and concentrated, clean, flavor.
When brewed around 160-180 degrees F, the brew is more grassy and almost floral and sweet. Brewed at cooler temperatures, the tea yields more umami and briney notes. This exquisite Gyokuro hails from Uji, Kyoto.
