About Mare Gyokuro | 稀玉露

Description: A stunning traditionally produced Gyokuro from the Hoshino Valley in Yame. Crafted from leaves shaded 25 days beneath rice straw, hand picked, and machine finished under the watchful eye of the producer. Mare is simply breath taking - power and finesse in equal measure. And don't take our word for it, this Gyokuro was the 2016 Nihoncha Awards platinum prize winner.

What is so special about this tea? Mare is painstakingly produced as "Dentou Hon Gyokuro" meaning all available resources were given to these plants - a house blended fertilizer consisting of line caught fish, rice straw "Honzu" shading material, hand harvesting, and a gentle "hiire" firing to coax out the sweetness of the leaf. We love the range of flavor and the enchanting scent of the mountains that this tea carries. Please note this is very limited in the amount we can procure as the production total for the year is very low.

Recommended for: If you demand the best, this is for you. Those seeking umami with no bounds rejoice.

Lovely tea. Umami bomb.

Excellent Gyokuro

Once again kettl has produced an excellent gyokuro. A great umami flavor and brewed perfectly in the jinshu teapot. Kettl will continue to be my first choice for top quality gyokuro.
