Description

Cultivar: Yabukita
Elevation:350m
Harvest Date:May 4, 2017

Yame Gyokuro is a high-elevation style gyokuro with a beautifully balanced palate. High mountain grown sencha and gyokuro typically demonstrates a unique aromatic brightness while low-elevation teas emphasize a richer oceanic umami profile. Classic Yabukita sencha fans will absolutely adore the brightness and balance of Yame Gyokuro. Yame Gyokuro is utterly refreshing and makes an excellent contrast to the more deeply umami and savory Uji Gyokuro Secret Garden.

This tea has been intentionally curated and aged from the May 2017 harvest and released in 2018 as its balanced flavor has matured.


Origin

Yame, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan

Tasting Notes

Fresh green notes of pleasant grassiness are balanced with a light dewy umami that transitions into the most delicate aromas of pine in the finish.
