Note: Packages for most tea products will use Yunomi resealable bags or tins (with some exceptions where stated, click here to see info and photos).

An ambrosia of umami flavor recalling the mists of Mt. Fuji, 180-year old Shogyokuen Tea Factory's Fuji no Tsuyu, is a premium gyokuro, the best of Japan.

Steeping notes

Tea: 3 grams, Time: 3 minutes, Water: 50˚C/122˚F degrees, 70 ml

This formula is meant to extract an umami syrup, an ambrosia of tea. Subsequent steeps may be enjoyed as a sencha, steeping a full cup for 30 seconds at 70˚C/158˚F degrees.

Another way to achieve this tea ambrosia is by allowing ice to melt over the leaf, our favorite way of enjoying this leaf in fact while with friends. You make a few drops at a time every 30 minutes, and spend a leisurely entire afternoon enjoying the leaf.
