We sourced and blended this organic gyokuro entirely from harvests grown in the Kyoto tea production region. It holds its own in our gyokuro lineup as a satisfying tea that rewards slow sipping.

Organic Gyokuro features a soft, blossoming umami taste, mellow sweetness, and a medium-rich character. Its fragrance is savory-sweet and warm like an ocean breeze.

Gyokuro fans will enjoy its richness in their regular gyokuro sessions. Those new to Japanese green tea may reach for this organic gyokuro as a less-astringent option when compared to sencha. If it’s your first time trying gyokuro, look forward to being stunned by the savory-sweet umami taste that occurs naturally in these teas.

Ranking outside of our regular lineup, this limited tea changes character with every release.

Our organic teas are produced in the Kyoto tea production region and are certified organic by the JAS. (The USDA recognizes JAS organic certification as an equivalent standard to USDA organic certification.) We have selected each organic variety to meet Ippodo standards for authentic Japanese green tea flavor, aroma, and color. Additionally, compared to our other tea blends, the weather and other growing factors lead to greater differences in the character of our organic teas every year. Discovering this year's unique characteristics is one of the delights of these teas.
