THE RAREST JAPANESE TEA …

GYOKURO ASAHI TEA is the rarest Japenese tea of all, being grown in the Kyoto region under special bamboo shades to control the amount of sunlight to the plants. ‘Gyokuro Asahi’ translates to ‘noble dewdrop’ in Japanese

The fine emerald needle-shaped leaves give a bright, delicate exquisite infusion. This green tea is naturally sweet and strong and known the world over for its fantastic health benefits – it’s full of antioxidants, great for cholesterol and a fantastic weight loss aid. Gyokuro Asahi is grown in the shade, similar to matcha tea. This gives the tea its rich green colour and helps to boost its nutrients

This shaded growth and minimal oxidation allow this tea’s leaves to keep more of their natural nutrients and antioxidants.The extra shelter this tea is given during growth contributes to the strong, sweet and satisfyingly full-flavoured taste in every cup of gyokuru asahi.
