Gyokuro is a special type of green tea shaded from the sun for 20 days with specially made mats which allows the caffeine levels to increase in the leaves, in addition to allowing the amino acids to get stronger, producing a sweeter and stronger flavor. Because of the cultivation process, the leaves have a very particular odor that is impossible to confuse.
Since the leaves are covered for such a long period of time throughout the cultivation process, the tea leaves are dark, creating a dark tea that is almost a mossy green. Its richness in color translates to a richness in taste, as well, with layers of flavors that never overpower one another.
This limited quantity green tea is made by using natural fertilizer made by Japanese local Sugarcane which includes great amount of amino acid. On top of the groundbreaking fertilizing method, actual fresh sugar liquid is being spread throughout the farm to bring the dirt rich. The result is the unforgettable sweetness you get in the mouth on each sip.
Using extreme care, the crop is harvested only once a year by hand by trained farmers who picks only the newly grown tea leaf sprouts.
