GYOKURO KIMIGAYO – FIRST FLUSH 50G
This organic Gyokuro was specially created by our tea tasters, for whom we selected only the best daily harvests from Kagoshima. After growing the tea in the shade for three weeks, the leaves of this Japanese green tea are gently steamed to retain their fine leaf texture.
Each batch is then given a so-called ‘roasting finish’ to give it a more intense flavour. After being stored for several months, our Gyokuro will be available in the autumn.
Every year our tea tasters determine the exact composition of this special blend, ensuring the perfect combination of cultivar properties to produce a well-rounded blend of flavours. It is so unique that it can be enjoyed simply by adding boiling water.
Time grown in the shade: 3 weeks
