Luxurious, Rich, Umami - Gyokuro is a refined shade grown Japanese green tea. Being shade grown causes both the amino acid theanine and the alkaloid caffeine in the tea leaves to increase, yielding a sweeter and more concentrated flavour.
It is one of the most expensive and luxurious types of green tea available in Japan. Be mindful when brewing this by using lower temperature water.
