YAME DENTOU HON GYOKURO No.1
YAME DENTOU HON GYOKURO No.1 is tea leaves that won the "Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Prize" in the Gyokuro category of the 2020 National Fair of Tea. We use tea leaves that were exhibited at the fair. We sell 300g of the finest tea leaves out of 4kg of annual production at our online shop.
GYOKURO (Refined green tea) is considered the highest-quality category of Japanese tea because it takes a lot of time and effort to produce.
YAME DENTOU HON GYOKURO is the only refined green tea that holds the "GI Authentication" authorized by the Japanese government to protect the relationship between production areas and products. It has been awarded Japan’s number 1 title the "Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Prize", for 19 consecutive years, including refined green tea producers and the refined green tea production area division of the National Fair of Tea, and truly reigns as premium Japanese tea.
YAME DENTOU HON GYOKURO is produced following the traditional technique of growing tea branches naturally, shading them with shelves made of woven natural straw, and finally picking only the top " tea buds" by hand.
There is a lot of refined green tea in Japan, but "Traditional Authentic YAME GYOKURO" is a miracle tea that can only be produced in "Yame" in the deep mountains, which are ideal for agriculture, located in the Yame region of Kyushu and the southern part of Fukuoka Prefecture in Japan.
This is a superb item that we would like you to enjoy with your loved ones on a special day in your life.
How to Brew
Put about 6 g (3 servings) of tea leaves in a teapot, pour 90 cc of hot water and let the tea steep for 2 minutes.
Generally, hot water of 50 to 60 degrees Celsius is best for refined green tea, but this tea is extracted with lower hot water of about 40 degrees Celsius to reduce bitterness and unpleasant taste.
It is delicious to dip the tea leaves in salt or Ponzu after enjoying the tea for about 5 times. (Ponzu is made of soy sauce and citrus juices.) Eating good tea leaves is also a feature of YAME DENTOU HON GYOKURO.
- Ice Brew
About 9 g of tea leaves (5 servings)
"Ice brew", which extracts YAME DENTOU HON GYOKURO with only ice, is loved as the secret technique of Yame tea. It is the ultimate way to brew tea. Put 150 g of ice on 9 g of tea leaves, put it in "refrigerator" and extract it overnight at the speed that the ice naturally melts.
Ice brew Traditional Authentic YAME GYOKURO has no bitter or astringent taste is poured in an almost transparent emerald green color. (You can enjoy it without the last step of squeezing.)
