Gyokuro bushes are covered in shade two weeks before harvesting, which creates a light but very complex blend and a luscious deep dark green color. The shading helps the leaves to retain chlorophyll, which concentrates both the green tea taste and nutrients, making this a bright and flavorful favorite. Rich, almost full-bodied, smooth taste with sweet ending & complex notes
Sweet, pleasant vegetal taste. Very green! I love that. Soothing and goes down easy. Nice when hot or iced, though I prefer it on the hot side of warm.
