The specialty of this premium tea lies in a very rare step during cultivation which is only used on a few teas: shading. The tea bushes are being covered with nets that barely let light through, just before harvest for a while. The lack of sunlights causes stress in the plant and therefore a higher production of beneficia contents, especially chlorophyll which is the cause of the intense green colour. This unique method provided a very intense Umami flavour which is why it is mostly found in Japan where the Umami of a tea is highly significant for its quality. The Gyokuro is not only delicious as a hot tea, but also as a cold infusion. Especially with the Cold Brew method of preparation you will get a very refreshing ice tea. Just put the loose tea leaves in a pot, pour over cold water and put in the fridge for about 6 hours. The aromas dissolve very slowly in the cold water from the leaves and it creates a mild, fresh green iced tea, which is not bitter or harsh at all.
