Kirishima Tennen Gyokuro
The king of Japanese teas and grown in the shade.
The leaves of a bright green of the Kirishima Tennen Gyokuro are kept in the shade for three weeks before their harvest in late April. These extremely delicate leaves, coming from the Asatsuyu variety, have a pronounced sweetness, which gives this Gyokuro the name Tennen Gyokuro, which means natural Gyokuro. It is a variety that is difficult to find under organic farming conditions thus making it quite rare. The sweetness and the fragrance of this tea awaken the senses with the complexity of its aromas and the infusion is of a striking green colour.
Tasting note: Umami, smooth, with a deep complexity, with caffeine
