Blend of Gyokuro and Hakuyocha

This blend of two shade-grown green tea that exists nowhere else has tons of theanine, an amino acid that contributes to umami and sweet flavor, and also works for reducing your stress level.

It’s made by Mr. Maeshima who has 50 years of experience in making Gyokuro from Okabecho, one of Japan’s three major Gyokuro producing regions. It’s hand-picked, and only 10kg (2.2lb) can be produced per year. He blends Gyokuro, the highest grade of Japanese tea with robust umami, and Hakuyocha (white leaf tea), which has greater amino acids than Gyokuro due to a more intensive shading method.
