Product Description

This is the highest quality tea produced in Japan. It is shaded several weeks before picking to concentrate the flavor in the tender new leaves. Careful hand processing brings out this teas' natural smoothness and depth. Once you try this you will see why it is a treasured beverage!

Insider Tip: Trust us when we say this tea is worth the price! Try a cup of this alongside a normal sencha and you will soon be a believer. The deep green, smoothness and shine of the leaves set it a world apart from a regular sencha or bancha.

Caffeine Level: Low.

Green teas are unoxidized and process by withering or wilting, followed by pan-firing or steaming, then a shaping process. During the shaping processes, further drying takes place, giving each green tea a distinct shape, character, and flavor. Often shaped by hand in places like China or Vietnam, the skill to craft these teas is passed down from generation to generation. In Japan, most of the tea processing is done mechanically, using machines and conveyor belts to steam, shape, and cool the teas.

My favorite Japanese green.
5 out of 5

For quite some time, I heavily favored another Japanese green offered at the shop, but I recently decided to buy a bag of Gyokuro Kin at a clearly-knowledgeable employee's recommendation. Upon tasting, it became my new favorite. The flavor is complex and robust, and no one element overpowers the other. I recommend this to any lover of green tea. Making each pot is a special occasion; all else is put on hold, and I am left only with my immediate surroundings, a clear mind, and the tea. This tea is serious business.
