This Yame Gyokuro is cultivated and processed according to the “Dento Hon” method. “Dento Hon” is a very unspoiled 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 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”.
Harvest: May 2020
Taste:  Sweet aroma with an immense amount of umami.
Origin:  Hoshino, Prefecture Fukuoka, Japan.
Varietal:  Yamakai
Preparation: In this blog post you will find a description of how to brew Japanese green tea in an optimal way.
Tip:  Use rather a higher leaf to water ratio and infuse repetitively for short time. First infusion max. 60s and all futher infusions only 30s as the leaves are already soaked. Use a Kyusu tea pot.

    Wünderschöner, heller, fast durchsichtiger Aufguss mit einem unglaublichem Umami. Die Blätter sind dunkel und schön glänzend wie es sich für guten Gyokuro gehört.

    Definitiv der beste Gyokuro die ich verkosten durfte. Der Aufguss ist fast farblos und ein wenig wolkig. Das Umami ist einfach unglaublich. Der Tee ist nicht billig aber jeden Rappen wert.

    Dieser Gyokuro ist der Hammer! Ein unglaubliches Umami und das ohne jegliche Herbe. Ich habe sogar den 100° Test gemacht. Auch diesen hat der Tee mit bravour bestanden.
