Tasting Notes: Grass. Sweet Corn. Umami.
Uji Gyokuro is the supreme of Japanese green teas. Shade-grown for two weeks, then promptly steamed following their harvest, gives these luxury green tea leaves their uniquely satisfying flavour and their cupful of healthy benefits.
A cup of Uji Gyokuro steeps a bright green vegetal cup with notes of umami and sweet corn.
