Uji Gyokuro

宇治玉露
Prized Green Energy

Known as “Jewel Dew”, Gyokuro is shade-grown for twenty days before harvest. The highest grade available, this truly special green tea is opulent in umami flavor and finishes smooth. It has a delicate sweetness, an element of its complexion that is due to the high L-theanine antioxidant content.
