A deep shaded Japanese green tea with an intense umami flavor

Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty, mused Japanese writer Tanizaki. We couldn't agree more. Considered one of Japan's finest teas, gyokuro leaves are shaded from sunlight several weeks before harvest to transform bitterness into sweet and savory perfection.

umami, sweet sticky rice, algae

Umami bomb

It has a biting character, strong umami flavor and an incredible green color. Recommend for all gyokuro lovers but perhaps too intese for "casual" green tea drinkers. Save it for those that can appreciate it.

Fantastischer Gyokuro

Praise of Shadows ist ein wundervoller Grüntee, der in der Nase schon sehr süßlich riecht, nach frischem Gras und Babyspinat.
Der Aufguss hat ein sanftes, leicht trübes Grün und schmeckt himmlisch weich und süß.
Für mich hat er Noten von sehr süßlichen Tomaten, gepaart mit Zitrus und einer angenehmen Salzigkeit.
