Commercial Description

The Standard Gyokuro Tea can also be called Kabusecha or Netsuyu Gyokuro (熱湯玉露 = hot water gyokuro). Shaded for a shorter amount of time (about two weeks) than the more premium gyokuro teas, it has a much more balanced taste due to the higher levels of astringent tasting antioxidants (catechins).

The aroma is very green, like fresh grass and moisture, an odd description, but it reminded me of the way cut grass smells after a brief rain storm. There is also a touch of nuttiness and sweetness with an end note of sweet peas.

The taste is a bit grassy and sweet like stone fruit, there is a touch of fresh kelp and a touch of spring dew. The mouthfeel is incredibly smooth and as it cools it becomes honey sweet. The flavors are incredibly subtle while being distinct.
