We are honored to be able to share a small amount of Japan's #1 Gyokuro as awarded by the Japanese Government's Office of Agriculture, Forests, and Fisheries - The governing body who selects and awards Japan's most distinguished agricultural products.
This 100% Saemidori cultivar Gyokuro scored a perfect 200/200 and was chosen as #1 out of over 140 competing teas from all over Japan.
Grown in Hoshinomura in Yame, Fukuoka prefecture only 3.9kg were produced.
The combination of meticulous garden management, harvesting and perfection level production leads to a tea that is beyond reproach - an unbelievably unctuous mouthfeel with umami and sweetness that will leave you without words.
This is a rare chance to try one of the true wonders of Japan.
This comes packaged in a wooden box with 2 x 5g packets (10g total)
