Be prepared to be utterly astounded.

Gyokuro is the highest grade of Japanese green tea - a shade grown sencha. The tea leaves are shielded from the sun for a few weeks before being harvested. This slow, deliberate shade growth increases the amino acid theanine and the alkaloid caffeine in the leaves and produces a very smooth flavour.

This Gyokuro was crafted by one of the oldest masters in Uji, Japan.
