Japan Gyokuro Asahi
Aristotle on Nature
"In all things of nature, there is something of the marvellous."
With its tender mildness and a hint of sweetness this tea is also known as "Jade Dew". Gyokuro is one of the most expensive and rarest teas in Japan due to its costly cultivation process. The tea plants are covered with bamboo mats for 20 days before picking. This causes the chemistry in the leaf to change and increase the amino acids, sugar and caffeine, which is therefore responsible for the impressive smooth taste.
