Description

Gyokuro Saemidori Organic Japanese Sencha

This delicious, deep green, needle-like green tea is made by fourth generation tea master, Osada Natsumi and is shade-grown at Nishi Seicha, Haruno Village in the Tenryu province of Shizuoka near Mount Akiba. Gyokuro Saemidori Organic uses the Saeimdori cultivar and is certified organic. It is processed with a light roasting which emphasises the richness of this Gyokuro. It has a mild, smooth, sweet grassy, lingering yet clean, and refreshing taste. If you are a lover of senchas you will adore this tea! Infuse with freshly drawn and boiled (ideally soft, even bottled) water that has cooled to around 80C for two minutes.

The region also has a clear view of mount Fuji and is located to the south west of Tokyo. Shizuoka is considered the home of sencha teas. This sencha Gyokuro is grown in the shade for twenty-one days as soon as the leaves start to bud in the spring. This is the first picking of the season. The effect is to boost chlorophyll production in the leaf which gives it its deep green colour. It also reduced photosynthesis so reducing tannins, enhancing the vegetal character and increasing sweetness the of the tea. Gyokuro Saemidori Organic is a top example of the skill used in making this elegant looking and fine tasting tea.

Tea from Grey's Teas

Our teas are loose leaf and we specialise in large leaf grades. All are made using traditional orthodox methods. Our teas are from named tea gardens or defined areas of origin.

Sourcing our tea

Gyokuro Saemidori Organic has been chosen for its distinctive, balanced flavour, aroma and appearance. Our tea is carefully sourced from long-established shippers. We can therefore guarantee the quality and origin of each tea and that it conforms to UK food and drink health regulations and our own demanding grading requirements.

The benefits of loose leaf tea

Gyokuro Saemidori Organic enables the full flavour characteristics of the tea to infuse. This tea is chosen for its high grade which imparts the flavour and aroma characteristics for which this tea is best known. A little extra time is necessary when infusing large leaf grades but you will be rewarded with a superior, more balanced cup. You will be well rewarded for your patience!

Our tough resealable packets contain a moisture barrier to ensure freshness is maintained and are specifically designed for tea. Alternatively, you can select a tin caddy for your tea. These square, silver coloured caddies have hinged lids. Again, 60 gram, 125 gram and 250 gram options are generally available as options which can be selected from the drop-down list. Packets and caddies have full-colour labels.
