Gyokuro is Japan's top grade of green tea, typically kept for special occasions rather than daily household use. Carefully grown in the shade for about three weeks prior to harvesting, the tea bushes produces higher levels of L-Theanine, an amino acid, in its tea leaves without increasing tannin. Enjoy Gyokuro's rich emerald hue, sweet aroma, and light, sweet taste.
