Ingredient: Organic Gyokuro
Gyokuro is pronounced “g-yo-koo-roh,” which means “jade dew” in Japanese. Gyokuro is a shade-grown tea (the same as Matcha), full of tender loving care, which increases the Umami or rich and savory flavor. Gyokuro is a wonderful selection for your morning cup or early afternoon pick-me-up because it offers a higher amount of Caffeine and L-theanine (a natural relaxant). We call this Gyokuro “Tea Master”, as this is grown by the renowned Tea Master, Mr. Sakamoto, at Sakamoto Tea Farm in Kagoshima, Japan. Mr. Sakamoto reduced the size of his tea farm to half years ago so that he could produce the Gyokuro with the highest level of Umami using a 100% organic method. Mr. Sakamoto uses only the first harvest to make this organic Gyokuro “Tea Master.” Try the finest of the Japanese green teas.
