With less bitterness than the beloved Sencha tea, Gyokuro Green Tea is among the most popular teas in Japan.
A green tea with an aroma like chlorophyll. These green tea leaves are covered prior to being harvested, giving them a deeper color and intensifying their herbal flavor. If ground to a fine powder, Gyokuro Green Tea becomes Matcha, the tea used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. An extraordinary tea.
