Photo of Leaf of Ureshino Tama Ryokucha from Wegmans by Alex Zorach

Loose-leaf green tea with vibrant dark green color and wiry, slightly curved leavesView Full Resolution

This photo shows loose-leaf guricha or tamaryokucha. This is the steamed version, which is much like a high-quality sencha in flavor, tending in the direction of gyokuro, but with a distinctive curved shape to the leaves, which you can clearly see here. The color is a vibrant dark green.
