Premium Organic Shiraore
First harvest (shincha 2023)
*Now available in 1 x 500g bulk package
This premium organic shiraore by tea master Irie san in Kuroki (Yame) is a delicacy for all senses.
Made with leaves, stems and twigs from leaves used for gyokuro, it is filled with umami that greets you as soon as you open the bag. Its white-gold stems stand out in beautiful contrast against the deep green color of the leaves.
As theanine is found double the amount in the stems and twigs as compared to in tea leaves, JIN is a great source of this precious amino acid that contributes to lowering blood pressure, relaxation, and protection of neuronal cells. Its low caffeine levels contribute to making JIN an excellent choice for people with poor caffeine tolerance.
Quickly and easily brewed in just 30 seconds with 90C water, JIN's beautiful liquor has no bitterness, and its sweetness and umami come with a satisfying lingering astringency. Nourishing, this is the perfect tea for your mid-morning break to hang on until lunch.
