no.132 Gyokuro

For certain, this tea is the noblest among the Japanese teas. A lot of elegance and a dark leaf of magnificent workmanship. Hand plucked once a year only in specific regions of Japan. Approximately three weeks before plucking this special tea, the bushes are shaded. Consequently, the reduced light results in a higher chlorophyll concentration in the tealeaves (which contributes to the intensive green color) and a lower tannin content giving the tea a sweeter milder flavor and fruity fragrance. For this reason the tea is also partly offered as "shadow tea". Early flavor impressions of pears and cream give way to a lively, pungent finish.
