Our Hibi Uji Gyokuro is grown and produced in Uji; a city on the southern outskirts of the city of Kyoto, in Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. Gyokuro is a Japanese green tea variety that is shaded for a minimum of two weeks before harvesting; this naturally increases the levels of chlorophyll in the leaf- which produces a distinctive umami-rich cup of green tea!
Our Hibi Uji Gyokuro (meaning “Daily Gyokuro” in Japanese) is an excellent high-quality, budget-friendly choice for Japanese tea lovers! Hibi Uji Gyokuro infuses a vibrant green liquor that is thick, grassy, and has a slight astringency. Its flavor is bolder than our highest quality Gyokuro varieties, making a great daily choice. Hibi Uji Gyokuro is wonderful with meals, and also makes an excellent iced green tea!
