Precious Dew, the meticulously hand-picked tea of Emperor's.
Connoisseur grade, hand-picked, shade-grown green tea
Also known as Precious Dew, Gyokuro tea is grown on emerald green plains in the Uji region, and picked only once a year, in the month of May. About three weeks before Gyokuro leaves are harvested, the entire tea garden is shaded with bamboo mats, which filter 90% of the light, causing the plant to produce more chlorophyll and less tannin. Only the most tender, topmost leaves are selected and steamed to prevent oxidation, fired in baskets, then meticulously hand-rolled to form Gyokuro Asahi loose leaf tea.

This is single handedly the best green tea I have had the pleasure to taste. Delicate and floral, it is fresh on the palate. You can truly taste the quality difference with this tea, particularly when brewed correctly.
The aroma is earthy and clean, the flavor delicate yet resilient. A great pick-me-up when added to my go-tos of white or herbal teas. I bought a small packet to try it out. I will definitely be purchasing the tin size on my next order.
premium delicious tea options to enjoy anytime with amazing taste profile…. i will continue to buy more.
