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). Gyokuro, Tea Master, is grown at renowned Sakamoto Tea Farm in Kagoshima, Japan. Try the finest of the fine loose leaf teas.
