Description

Tea Master Kiya san skillfully blended the handpicked and shaded leaves from the Goko, Yabukita and Yamakai cultivars to bring you this rare dento hon gyokuro from Hoshinomura (Yame).

Discover a golden delicacy, rich in amino acids, sweet and filled with umami. Enjoy how its rich and thick liquor coats your tongue and palate for a lingering savory taste, enhanced by the careful blending of cultivars.

Its sweetness and very light astringency make it the perfect choice to take your first steps into the world of dento hon gyokuro, but they will also delight connoisseurs.

Available in 100g bags (plain or washi wrapped).

For more details and additional steeping techniques (cold and ice brew (kōridashi) ), feel free to read the in-depth review prepared by our tea taster Alex.

Food Pairing

You may enjoy this tea by itself or pair it with a wagashi or a higashi (a dried and pressed wagashi with a lower moisture content). If you would like to enjoy this tea with food, you may pair it with sashimi and other raw fish dishes.

You might also like to taste the tea with a piece of chocolate to see how the flavors balance and contrast with one another.
