- Ingredients: Green tea
- Harvest: Spring
- Notes: Shaded for about 3 weeks before harvest for the extra umami flavor for which gyokuro is known. After processing into dry leaf, the leaf tips of the leaves (that break off during the rolling process) are separated out to form this tea.
- Region: Kyoto
THE STORY OF THE DISCOVERY
We actually went out of our way to find this tea after Sencha Tea Ceremony master Yukiko Hasue introduced us to this tea. Finding the century old Nakamura-en Tea Shop on the eastern side of Tokyo near the Sumo Wrestling Arena (Ryogoku station), we convinced Nakamura-san to let us carry this tea and share it with the world.
Nakamura-san does speak a bit of conversational English, so if you are ever in Tokyo do visit his shop!! He has no website though, so simply follow this simple map (GOOGLE MAP).
