Gyokuro Uji


This tea is made of emerald needle-shaped leaves, a colour they acquire after spending three weeks under coverings before the harvest. The name of the tea means ‘jade dew’, it brews a pale and bright green liquor, and the taste has an interesting complexity; while slightly marine and saline, it also has vegetal notes of chlorophyll and green vegetables.

Region: Uji, Japan

Season: 2023
