Sale price$15.50


Tsuyuhikari Gyokuro - 2024 Shincha (New Harvest Tea)
Origin: Satsuma, Kagoshima Prefecture. Naturally grown with no synthetic pesticides or fertilizers.
Cultivar: Tsuyuhikari
This Naturally Grown Gyokuro from Satsuma, in mountainous central Kagoshima Prefecture, infuses to a golden-green hue, with a slight marine air fragrance despite the mountain growing region. It has medium body and the complexity of a good balance of amami (sweetness) and shibumi (astringency), but with a slightly peppery astringent finish.

Satsuma Town is the result of the recent merger of the smaller towns of Tsuruda, Satsuma, and Miyanojou, a well-known tea-growing area. Although mountainous, the large Sendai River runs through it, helping to create the conditions ideal for tea farming.
