GYOKURO KIMI GA YO RULER OF THE WORLD GREEN TEA

Gyokuro Kimi Ga Yo Ruler of the World Green Tea
As low as £40.00
Kimi Ga Yo, known as 'Ruler of the World', is arguably Japan's very best Gyokuro tea. The tea bushes from which Gyokuro is made are shaded for a month before picking. This has the effect of increasing the Chlorophyll levels in the tea and gives Gyokuro its distinctive character. It has fine, feathery leaves of an emerald green hue. It has an intense flavour and beautiful, lemon green infusion. The tea is so full of essential tea oils that the infusion is cloudy, as the oils emulsify in the water.

Kimi Ga Yo, known as 'Ruler of the World', is arguably Japan's very best Gyokuro tea. The tea bushes from which Gyokuro is made are shaded for a month before picking. This has the effect of increasing the Chlorophyll levels in the tea and gives Gyokuro its distinctive character. It is an organically produced tea, which is very rare in Japan. It has fine, feathery leaves of an emerald green hue. It has an intense flavour and beautiful, lemon green infusion. The tea is so full of essential tea oils that the infusion is cloudy, as the oils emulsify in the water. The aroma is sweet, subtle, yet intense, with green, mineral qualities but also some fruit. The tea is made by Mr Yoshimi Nishi on the slopes of the Sakurajima/Kirishima volcano. He has won many awards in Japan's tea competitions. This is one of the very rare teas that regularly comes first. Although successfully producing excellent teas all round, once a year, Mr. Nishi produces an absolutely top quality in very small quantities. This batch, which is lovingly handpicked and handcrafted is the Supreme quality. It is worth brewing the tea as Mr Nishi recommends, which is 3g of tea to 250ml of 45c filtered water, infusing for 5 minutes.
