DESCRIPTION Literally means “precious dew” in Japanese. Gyokuro has a dark green color, and when brewed it is slightly sweet, with a refreshing aroma.
At least 20 days prior to harvesting, the tea leaves are shielded from sunlight. With less sunlight, there is less photosynthesis. Therefore, there is less L-theanine being converted into catechin when the leaves are under the shade. This is why gyokuro is rich in L-theanine and why it has its characteristic taste.
