Begin your journey into organic Gyokuro with the Sakamoto Double pack! In this bundle, you will find Mr. Sakamoto's two most popular teas, both with beautiful artwork created by him.
100g Gyokuro Cha Musume: This tea has a well-developed umami note, accompanied by a nice sweetness and a slight note of hazelnut. It stays in the palate for a long time and continues to develop after the first sip. Compared to the other Gyokuro, this Yabukita Gyokuro is perhaps the strongest and most direct on the savory note.
100g Gyokuro Sasa Hime: The Sasa Hime is a very fine, well-balanced Gyokuro. It offers a subtle natural Umami taste that is rounded out with the grassy vegetal flavor of the tea. It has only a slight acidity. The first brewing has a note of spinach and a well-developed sweetness and natural umami taste. Compared to some of the other Gyokuros we have seen, the Umami taste here is a bit more subtle and blends in nicely with the grassiness of the tea. A slight note of hazelnut is also noticeable. The second brewing has a balance between its sweetness and a natural umami taste. You may also notice a slight acidity and a very subtle sourness.
