About Kyotanabe Hinpyoukai Gyokuro | 京田辺品評会玉露

Description: The name Yamashita is to Gyokuro as Domaine Leflaive is to Chardonnay or Domainee de la Romanee-Conti is to Pinot Noir. It is a name that carries significant influence and respect in the industry. Shinki Yamashita, who produced this stunning 2020 100% Goukou Competition Gyokuro is tending the same plants he inherited from his grandfather, the legendary Toshikazu Yamashita. It is hard to understate Toshikazu san's influence on the industry of Gyokuro - he has won the National prize more than any other producer and his teas was bestowed the "Order of the sacred treasure" by the Prime Minister of Japan as well as "Master craftsman of Japan" but the Japanese Ministry of Labor. Shinki san has been guided by his grandfather and is now producing top tier, prize-winning Gyokuro of his own. We are proud to be the sole supplier of his unblended, 100% Goukou Gyokuro anywhere - Japan included.

What is so special about this tea? This tea was acquired from the Yamashita families private stock. We are honored to be able to showcase this unique cultivar. The plants that make this 100% Gokou cultivar Gyokuro are shown the absolute highest level of care. A unique all natural fertilizer was developed specifically for this garden. Intense 28 day shading is done by traditional Honzu rice straw coverings and each leaf is picked by hand. A unique method of finishing is applied using only charcoal heat imbuing the tea with a fascinating cereal grain aroma. A stunning richness and astounding aroma places that at the apex of of the Gyokuro experience.
