Japanese Green Tea – Yame Gyokuro
Tea grown for competition has to be best of the best, a lot of work is poured into small amounts of tea and the result is often extraordinary. The result of this work for this tea is an amazing deep, mellow and smooth flavor. Three weeks before harvesting trees are covered traditionally by special bamboo tents. Shading creates a unique smell to the leaves and the unique taste of the liquor, which is naturally more sweet, mellow and has rich and complex flavors that meld together beautifully. This high quality Yame Gyokuro is treated as a luxury for a special occasion because of its rarity and extraordinary taste, aroma and complex characteristics. This is not your every day tea but a tea that should be celebrated with.
