Taste Notes

Tenka-ichi means “the best under the heavens.” True to its name, this gyokuro represents the pinnacle of luscious umami in our selection. We produce this blend from the top gyokuro farms in the Kyoto area. Its taste is smooth and robust, its aroma sings, and its aftertaste lingers with layers of complexity. We recommend enjoying this remarkable tea slowly at contemplative tea sessions. We also recommend Tenka-ichi as cold brew, to taste the full potential of its deep umami and sweetness.

Jade dew for sure

Really rich and full. Shows up all the way for 3-4 brews. And continued steepings are still so sweet and light. This example is what I like about gyokuro.
