Gyokuro Hoshino - Premium Japanese Green Tea

by jasonlee88 » Jul 12th, '13, 12:23

Has anyone tried Gyokuro from Hoshino Village, YAME? Share your experience on Gyokuro Tea Testing. I would like to know more details and taste from different region in Japan.

Description about Gyokuro:
"Gyokuro is admired as the highest grade of Japanese green tea. Its leaves are grown in the shade for twenty days before being expertly picked by hand. Then they are immediately steamed, dried and carefully rolled into distinctive shapes resembling pine needles. Gyokuro is harvested only once a year in the early spring. The delicate flavor and slightly sweet aftertaste make Gyokuro the choice of green-tea connoisseurs."
