"Balázs's favorite" Gyokuro Haruto
One of Mr. Sakamoto's super premium Zen Gyokuro series. Balázs and I selected two of the 4-person top gyokuro among our other teas this year. The one we liked the most. We also named it that way, whose favorite tea was. 🙂
Made from the Haruto tea plant variety, Gyokuro was a favorite of Balázs.
Characterful, rich, full-bodied and complex Gyokuro, truly masculine. 🙂
Gyokuro is a green tea with a rich, comforting sweet umami flavor. Before picking, green tea is shaded and steamed for at least 4 weeks, from which valuable tea essence can be obtained. Aroma is rich and followed by a long sweet aftertaste. From Kagoshima, organic cultivation. Made from Haruto tea plant variety.
It has a long-lasting taste and a richness of aroma, a tea that is balanced in all its flavors.
Mr. Sakamoto has been making bio-organic tea here since 1985, he is the third generation among the family's tea farmers. He is a well-respected specialist among organic tea growers in Japan.
Balázs met and got to know Mr. Sakamoto in Kagoshima in November 2019 as part of a Japanese tea scholarship.
The tea comes to us in a 30 g vacuum package from Mr. Sakamoto, and we store it here refrigerated to guarantee that it stays fresh.
