This Yame Gyokuro was cultivated and processed according to the “Dento Hon” method. “Dento Hon” is a very basic and natural way to make tea. The tea bushes are not trimmed into rows as usually but let naturally grow. Such tea fields are not very picturesque and it makes it impossible to do harvest by machines but in return the reward is an extraordinary aroma. In addition, these tea bushes are at least 20 days prior to harvest shaded with straw mats. Does straw mats are called in Yame “Sumaki” while elsewhere they are called “Honzu”.

The used variety “Fujimidori” is known for its particular aroma and deep green color. Our producer from Hoshino has processed this particular variety into a unique Gyokuro.

Harvest: Spring 2020
Taste: very sweet aroma with a immense amount of umami
Origin: Hoshino, Prefecture Fukuoka, Japan
Varietal: Fujimidori
Preparation: In this blog post you will find a description of how to brew Japanese green tea in an optimal way.

    Ich habs mir mehrfach überlegt, ob ich mir solch einen teuren Gyokuro kaufen soll. Aber ich hab es nicht bereut. Er ist ein bisschen fruchtig und hat extrem viel Umami. Sehr empfehlenswert!

    Dies ist bereits der 2. Dento Hon Gyokuro den ich von Teamania gekauft habe. Es hat mich wunder genommen ob der Aufpreis von CHF 5 gegenüber dem Dento Hon Yamakai gerechtfertigt ist. Der Tee ist in der Tat noch ein Stück intensiver und Süsser. Kommt besonders gut in einer Shibodashi!
