    Gyokuro Hiki is a genuine Japanese green tea characterized by the full shading (housing) of the tea plants with several net layers. It is the careful, traditional handcrafting that makes this Gyokuro from the valleys of the Hiki River, Wakayama Prefecture, a particular rarity. The handwork visually manifests in the appearance of the long, needle-shaped, fir-green tea leaves. The bright, clear greenish-light yellow shimmering liquor impresses with fresh grass notes and intensively sweet, fully aromatic “umami”.
