This elegant gyokuro is the epitome of "precious jade dew." With a luscious, sappy and sticky sweet body this gyokuro reverberates with a salty umami reminding one of hijiki seaweed and sweet, preserved kombu. The flavor profile is both dynamic and well harmonized, like an exotic oceanic consommé essence.
