Mare Gyokuro / 稀玉露 Wholesale
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 product? 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.
