Gyokuro Jade Dew

Ingredients:  Green tea from the Uji tea gardens near Kyoto, Japan.

Description:  Three weeks before this tea is harvested, the growers shade the fields over.  Then when harvesting time comes, they hand cut the leaves using small scissors.  The result is Japan’s most elegant tea.  These needle shaped emerald leaves produce a brilliant yellow liquor with a sweet seaweed smell.  A single taste reveals an exquisitely complex array of flavors, from kelp-like to sweet to nutty.  Sip slowly and let your senses awaken.
