Being a shade-cultivated tea, gyokuro is rich in theanine-an amino acid responsible for its full-bodied, mellow, and thick sweetness. In Japan, there is a special name for this taste: umami. Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste. Gyokuro fans love this tea for its sweet, less-astringent nature and its deep-green aroma.
Made from gyokuro mecha (shoots and buds) and konacha (flakes), our Gyokuro One Cup Teabags will brew a lighter-bodied tea than the loose leaf versions. Packaged in a wide pyramid-shape sachet, the tea leaves have a lot of space to expand. The result is a simple and authentic cup of Japanese tea every time.
How to brew
Add one gyokuro teabag to a cup, pour on hot water*, and wait for 1.5 minutes. Move the teabag around in the cup until the tea has reached the desired strength, and you're done. *Use less-than-boiling temperature water to enjoy a well-balanced brew.
This 12-bag box, which includes instructions on the back in both English and Japanese, will provide plenty of delicious tea for your enjoyment at home or at work.
Lovely, delicate yet rich (not floral, which I prefer).
