HARVEST TIMING:   Ichibancha (1st harvest)


HARVEST METHOD:    Hand-Picked

BREED:  Yabukita and Gokoh

Crafted from the Karigane (stems and veins) of Gyokuro Superior tea leaves, our Gyokuro Karigane Superior is a rare tea. These stems only account for about 5% to 10% of all tea leaves, so only a limited amount of Gyokuro Karigane can be produced each year. Even in Kyoto, the center of Japanese green tea culture and production, it is difficult to find top-grade Gyokuro Karigane. 

Gyokuro itself has the most Niacin (vitamin B3) of any Japanese tea.
