One of the most prestigious teas of Japan, Gyokuro is shade-grown for weeks before harvest - resulting in elevated levels of L-theanine and a slightly sweet, vegetal aroma. Aiya's organic Gyokuro grows in the southernmost tea-producing region of Japan, where warmer weather and an early spring impart the leaves with a delicate savoery impression. To protect its flavor, enjoy Gyokuro at a slightly cooler temperature.
The Aiya Tea Taster's Line is a collection of USDA Certified Organic, authentic Japanese green teas, carefully selected for bringing the rich history of Japanese green teas to the American market. The Tea Taster's Line offers these exclusive collections in pyramid tea bags for a better brewing experience.
