Gyokuro (also called Dewdrop) is one of the greatest tea experiences you can have. This exclusive and sophisticated organic tea is fresh, grassy, has algal aromas with crisp, elegant flavours and a rounded sweetness. It should scarcely be seen as a commonplace everyday tea, but rather as something you drink as a treat. It is usually in mid-April that the tea is first harvested, which is a major occasion of celebration in Japan and among tea lovers around the world. At the beginning, the cultivation and manufacturing process is similar to that undergone by all Japanese teas. But, there is a big difference about 20 days before harvesting when the tea bushes are covered with Bast fible mats so that their final growth takes place in the shade. This means that photosynthesis decreases. Rather than from solar energy, nutrition is obtained from the soil, which increases the amounts of chlorophyll, flavouring and caffeine in the tea leaves, and also creates the tea’s typical dark green colour, darker than that of most teas.

Gyokuro is grown and processed in Kirishima located in the Kagoshima Prefecture in the very south of Japan. Gyokuro is made exclusively from the year’s first harvest, in the spring.

I discovered the delights of Gyokuro tea some  years ago in New York. It is an expensive tea, but I treat myself to one cup per day. I brew a teaspoonful  of the tea in a" one cup" Japanese tea pot - at between 80 and 85 degrees for about 7 mins.  The ...
