To make gyokuro, tea bushes are shaded directly for about 3 weeks cutting out the sunlight increasing umami flavor and decreasing bitterness. The leaves are then harvested by machine and processed using sencha processing methods--steaming, rolling, and drying.

Finally, during the finishing process, stems of the leaves are separated. This makes a karigane, or high grade stem tea, called "shira-ore" in the Kyushu region. The stems tend to have less flavor overall, but also less bitterness and more sweetness.

To steep this tea, prepare your hot water (or cool off to) 50 ℃ so that the tea leaves are soaked and wait for 2 minutes. Please enjoy the traditional taste and aroma that spreads in your mouth.
