(Gyokuro) After harvest, tea leaves for Gyokuro go through (1) steaming, (2) drying and kneading (crumpling), and (3) sorting. This processing is the same as Sencha. Kneading enables the tea leaves to extract the flavor and constituents into the water. Gyokuro has a mellow flavor and sweet taste. When brewed, Gyokuro has a pure grassy green color. Brewing more slowly with lower temperature water is also one reason why Gyokuro brings a relaxed atmosphere as well as an excellent flavor. The highest grade Gyokuro has the most sweet and mellow flavor. Tea plantation is found in Uji Kyoto. It is grown under 90%shade for about 21 days before harvest.
