Are you looking for a little extra caffeine in your tea? This is the perfect sampler for you. Gyokuro has the highest caffeine content of any Japanese leaf tea. The enhanced caffeine content comes from the intense shading that occurs for 3 weeks before the harvest. Unlike with coffee, green tea has theanine, which can blunt some of the negative effects of caffeine. This means less jitters, less of a crash and more of a sustained "calm-alert" feeling.
