Gyokuro Kerigane Green Tea

Description

Description

Gyokuro Kerigane green tea offers the deliciously luxuriant aroma and taste of a premium Gyokuro tea for a fraction of the cost. This is because Gyokuro Kerigane green tea is made from the stems and veins of the only highest-quality Gyokuro tea leaves, which provides it with a distinctively sweetness of taste.

The reason for the typically high price tag of Gyokuro Kerigane green tea is due to its rarity. This is firstly because there are fewer organic growers of this type of tea in Japan, compared to the more common Sencha tea plant. Secondly, knowing that it is a highly prized type of tea, growers will often choose to share it with their friends and family rather than sell it for profit.

However, Gyokuro Kerigane green tea’s high price isn’t merely due to its rarity. It is also highly sought after for its deliciously sweet aroma and rich levels of teanin. This composition comes as a result of it being grown in the shade for up to 30 days before it is harvested. Gyokuro Kerigane can also be used to manufacture a type of emerald tinged liquor.

While not a difficult tea to brew, there are many different ways of brewing Gyokuro Kerigane at many different temperatures. This variety is another reason for its revered place in Japan’s highly ritualistic tea culture along with its sweet taste.

Matcha Premium Green Tea

The ancient city of Kyoto in Japan is where the country’s revered tea ceremony was born. It’s natural that the birthplace of Japanese tea culture is also the home of one of its most prized tea leaves – the Matcha tea leaf. This high grade tea leaf is grown and harvested exclusively in the Uji hills surrounding the proud city. Specifically, it is close to the river that the tea plants are grown. This is due to the higher fertility of the soil. Packed with nutrients and moisture flowing down from the hills, it’s believed that it’s this special soil that gives Matcha tea leaves their signature deep and mellow taste.

Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita Green Tea

Japan is renowned for its elaborate tea ceremony and for producing green tea that changes its taste as it cools. However, Organic Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita isn’t one of them. While Japanese and deserving of a sense of ceremony when it’s brewed, Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita maintains its mild yet stimulating taste at whatever temperature it’s drunk. Even when it is brewed for the first time, Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita doesn’t have any astringency and has a smooth body. Its deliciously sweet aftertaste also lingers, inviting you to take another sip. The second time Kagoshima Sencha Yabukita is brewed it continues to offer a full bodied and satisfyingly refreshing cup of tea.

Bancha Green Tea

Japanese Bancha tea is harvested from the same tree as the popular Sencha family of teas. However, the leaves for Bancha tea are harvested later, towards the start of autumn and almost up until winter when the leaves are larger. This is known as the ‘second flush’ of harvesting. Due to the fact that they are picked later in the year, Bancha tea is ranked at a lower grade than traditional Sencha tea. The advantage of this is that it makes Bancha tea much more affordable.

Gyokuro Green Tea

Our WellTea Gyokuro represents the pinnacle of Japanese green tea. It is shaded prior to harvesting, which stresses the tea plant, resulting in a higher chlorophyll content. In the cup, this creates a fuller body and bolder vegetal quality.

Kabusecha Sencha Green Tea

The harvesting process for Kabusecha Green tea is rather unique. Like all teas, the leaves are left to grow in natural sunlight. Then 2-3 weeks before they’re harvested the tea plants are covered with huge black sheets to block around half of the sunlight, hence the name Kabusecha which literally means ‘covered tea’. The reason for this is to bring out the tea’s highly sweet taste and remove any hint of bitterness. This has led to comparisons with Japanese Gyokuro tea, both in terms of taste and the emerald green colour of the leaves.
