Description

This limited edition, competition-grade dento hon gyokuro is the precious jewel of Kiya san, in the town of Hoshino in Yame where growing gyokuro is a long-established tradition.

A blend of yamakai and kanaya midori cultivars, it is hand-picked during the first harvest and produced in very small quantities. Its beautiful leaves are shaped like perfect long needles.

The first brew is done at very low temperatures. It yields a concentration of elegance and sweetness typical of gyokuro. Its round and rich taste swirls around the mouth and leaves a long and delicious lingering feeling.

An exceptional and rare tea for the most demanding green tea connoisseurs. The leaves can be re-brewed up to four or five times, like a sencha, and make for a delicious snack with a little pinch of salt, or ponzu sauce. Sold in five bags of eight grams each, in a beautiful wooden box signed by Kiya san.
