From Yamashiro, one of Kyoto’s leading suppliers of premium Uji-style teas, this popular “Hot Water” brand gyokuro tea includes small amounts of amino acids added, in order for the tea to be more easily prepared in boiling water. Gyokuro teas are usually steeped at low temperatures, which complicates the preparation process, but “Hot Water” Uji Gyokuro allows you enjoy the taste, richness, and aroma of gyokuro more easily with the same preparation method as other green teas.
Gyokuro is the highest grade of Japanese green tea, grown on special tea plantations and traditionally shaded with straw mats for the last 3-4 weeks before picking. This tea is best enjoyed in small sips, to allow the rich aroma, and gentle, subtle flavors to fill your palate.
