TGL invites you to a guided tasting of teas from the most rural and isolated areas in Japan. Being one of the highest grades of green tea in Japan, Gyokuro goes through a long shading process (appx 20 days), which gives its buttery sweetness and intense umami flavor.
This Week's Gyokuro Course
Competition Grade Gyokuro - Fukuoka, Japan
Hand picked and produced specifically to represent the grower at local and national contests. Grown from heritage plants, tea of this pedigree is a rarity in Japan.
Chilled Sobacha - Nagano, Japan
Sugars in the buckwheat kernels caramelize as they are fired leading to a naturally sweet cup with a golden liquor and lasting, toasted finish. Naturally free of caffeine.
Chilled Jou Yanagi Houjicha - Uji, Japan
Late harvest Uji bancha is drum roasted until reaching a deep brown, almost black hue. Incredibly fragrant and easy drinking, this is the perfect winter cup.
