Gyokuro, meaning 'pearl dew,' is among the finest specialty teas of Japan. The secret of this rarity lies in the fact that the young shoots are grown under shady conditions. The tea will delight you with its dark green needle leaf and its fragrant-flowery, almost sweet, very aromatic flavor. It is very flavorful and has a fresh, flowery aroma.
The tea leaves are less than 1 inch in length but is extremely fragrant and tender. The tea bushes are shaded from sun for three weeks. The sun-deprived tea that grows in the shade is high in chlorophyll, which makes it darker than normal, but lower in tannins, which makes it sweeter and mild tasting. This mild, vitalizing tea has found many friends among green tea novices and tea enthusiasts alike. Try with some with white crystal sugar.
