A first harvest organic gyokuro green tea from a small organic tea garden in Ujitawara, Kyoto, Japan. It is made exclusively from the cultivar known as Yabukita, is 100% Uji Gyokuro Green Tea, and is grown under Tana coverage.
It's a fairly easy-to-brew gyokuro and doesn't really require excessive messing around with brewing temperatures or ridiculous amounts of tea leaves. It's naturally sweet and rich, is clean to taste, and is both refreshing and vitalizing to drink!
