Heavenly Drop Gyokuro is a rare tea with a silky and rich umami flavor accompanied by hints of caramel and a lingering melon aroma. Its elegant and slender dark green needles create a vibrantly pale green liquor. Shaded from the sun for three weeks before its spring harvest, Heavenly Drop Gyokuro is a truly luxurious tea.A luxury green tea from Kyoto Prefecture, grown between 500 and 1500 ft above sea level. This fine green tea is covered in black curtains or bamboo shades to increase the chlorophyll and reduce the catechin content. The result is a darker green leaf with a sweeter flavour with no bitterness. Usually brewed in a Kyusu, a special Japanese teapot, you can be sure to enjoy a full flavoured green tea that is very satisfying.
