Extreme umami, notes of seared steak, ocean brine, dew

One of the most exclusive (and expensive) teas on the market. Difficult and time consuming to make, this tea yields the one of the highest umami flavors out there, as well as providing extreme amounts of L-theanine (which is known to produce feelings of focus and wellbeing). Packed at the farm in small, 50 gram (2 ounce) bags. Be mindful when brewing this to use lower temperature water, to prevent scalding the leaves.

Processing NotesAka “Jade Dew,” gyokuro is covered with “tana” (black nets and bamboo frames) to shade the tea, concentrate the chlorophyll, increase L-theanine and caffeine, and yield pure umami.
