Teas in this range can be steeped multiple times, presenting delicate variations in flavour with each steeping, creating beautiful moments to appreciate their unique qualities.


Shibushi, Kagoshima, Japan

Also known as Jade Dew tea, Gyokuro is produced entirely by hand and considered the most precious of all Japanese green teas. Gyokuro plantations are covered by shade for 3 weeks before harvest so most of the sun’s rays are covered from the leaves. This process ensures the plants release much more chlorophyll and amino acids than regular green tea. Gyokuro has a beautiful dark emerald appearance and offers a smooth, slightly buttery and subtly sweet vegetal taste profile.
