Gyokuro Green Tea Pouch 50g

SKU: FGTE23107 Categories: , , , ,

The most refined and precious Japanese tea. Made from young leaves – grown, hand-picked and processed with extreme care and skill. The bushes are shaded for two weeks prior to harvesting to produce a higher concentration of polyphenol and chlorophyll, creating the characteristic rich sweet flavour, mild in taste and forest green colour.

Details-

The Hattori family are quite unusual; crafting single estate, small batch green teas in Shizuoka, Japan, whereas Japanese green teas are almost always produced at a large factory from leaves from multiple farms, lacking a single-origin character. Hattori-san grows his leaf completely chemical-free, and his approach combines the best of modern and traditional styles. Instead of shading the tea plants with cloth to block out the sunlight, he has installed solar panels over the plants, allowing for the harvest of premium tea, and of clean energy, too.
