Yame Gyokuro Imperial Select


This tea is made from bushes which are covered over 16 days with traditional straw mats to block the sun, which is considered to be the most ideal material to produce the best Gyokuro. Yame Gyokuro Imperial Select is made using the yongest leaves of  Saemidori, Saeakari, Kirari 31 and Yabukita bushes. The sweet, rich flavor of Yame Gyokuoro Imperial lingers in your mouth almost 30 minutes after taking a sip. Yame Gyokuro Imperial Select is from Yame, a region in the Southern island of Kyushu renowned for its high quality, produced by a master artisan.
