It has arrived. This years award winning Gyokuro. We have a relationship with the producer and were able to secure just a handful of boxes. Each box has 5 x 5grams individually wrapped with a certificate of authenticity. We have already sold 6 of the 10 boxes we secured for retail sales. We have one additional box for individual 5g sales.
In terms of Japanese green tea, this is the top of the mountain. Its a sublime and truly one of a kind experience to drink this style and caliber of tea. Picked and processed completely by hand, this Gyokuro was chosen amid over 50 other teas to claim the title: The Best of 2013.
The structure of the tea is perfect: Velvety mouthfeel, deep buttery umami, and a slightly floral finish that will stay with you for upwards of 30 minutes!
