Origin:Yame, Fukuoka, Japan


"Shizuku" means dewdrop and was chosen to represent this beautiful gyokuro's essence flowing into water. Grown in Yame, Fukuoka, this tea is a very traditional style gyokuro made from Yabukita and Sae Midori (meaning "Crystal Clear Green") cultivars. It has an incredible natural rainforest aroma accompanied by a strong umami and sweet pea flavor and a thick mouthfeel.

Recommended Brewing: As a premium gyokuro, we recommend using a high quality small Japanese kyusu. Use 5g per 6 oz of water and brew at around 120-140°F for 3-4 minutes. Can be steeped multiple times.
