Gyokuro Asahi

£12.99

Premium Japanese green tea from Chiran, Kagoshima, Japan.

A Japanese rarity which roughly translates as "jewel dew". About two weeks before the harvest the tea bushes are covered with bamboo mats. The "shadow tea" develops less tannin, has a distinctly higher caffeine content and the leaves are a very dark green and slightly shiny. In Japan Gyokuro is served especially to guests of honour. It has an elegant, subtle, yet strong flavour with a touch of sweetness.

 

Tea Type Temperature Steeping time
White & Green Tea 70-80 °C 1-3 minutes
Oolong, Black Tea & Pu Erh 85-100 °C 2-3 minutes
Herbs, Fruits & Spices 100 °C 5-10 minutes*

 

We recommend adding a splash of whole or semi-skimmed milk to our breakfast & flavoured black teas.  Use 1 heaped teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup & 1g of matcha per 100ml.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch.
