About Gyokuro: Meticulously cultivated in shaded fields, gyokuro is the most exquisite of the Japanese loose-leaf teas. With a full-bodied yet mellow sweetness (umami) that softly lingers on the tongue, gyokuro is best appreciated when slowly sipped during a relaxing moment of the day. While many teas are consumed as a means to quench a thirst, gyokuro is different. Its refined luxurious taste is meant to be savored, not rushed.
For the seasoned gyokuro drinker who prefers a medium to light umami taste, Kakurei is an excellent choice.
About Sencha: Grown in full sunlight, sencha leaves are fresh, fragrant and full of vitality. Characterized by a harmonious blend of sweetness, bitterness, richness, astringency and fragrance, sencha has long been a favorite among ardent tea lovers. In the morning or afternoon, before or after a meal, sencha is the perfect drink to revitalize the mind and refresh the spirit.
For the sencha connoisseur with a discerning taste, Kumpu is an excellent choice. With its characteristic elegant fragrance and fresh sweet aftertaste, this extra-premium connoisseur-class sencha is a favorite among our patrons.
