Another gift from Uji is this truly remarkable Gyokuro. Known as 'Precious Dew', this treasure use only the highest quality leaves that are hand selected from the finest bushes. Shielded from direct sunlight for the last 3 weeks before harvest, the shading process inhibits photosynthesis forcing the plant to draw up additional nutrients that increases sugar, caffeine and amino acids. Enjoy the mellow aroma with a gentle sweetness. Simply amazing!
