Description

From the small mountainous area of Hoshinomura (Yame), renowned for its gyokuro, this beautiful and luxurious gift set combines 160g of premium gyokuro and 160g of premium sencha.

As you open the bag, you will enjoy the nutty aroma of the gyokuro, as well as its fine needles and deep emerald green. Rich and full on the palate, its powerful umami and sweet taste are complemented by slightly oaky notes that will remind you of dashi broth. Its long after taste has a subtle bitterness.

The sencha has a sweet and delicate aroma. Its fine needles and deep green are delightful. Brewed, its emerald color is beautiful, its umami is subtle. A delicate green tea, sweet and with no trace of bitterness.
