Dento Hon Gyokuro "Seifu"


伝統本玉露 星風

Yame, Fukuoka

May 2023

Yame is a special place. It is defined by dramatic mountains and cascading waterfalls. It is also known to produce the best Gyokuro in Japan, making it home to the traditional craftsmanship for this kind of tea. Over 100 years of experience making Gyokuro lives in Yame and thus, the tea that comes from here has set the standard for Gyokuro around the world for a very long time.  

This is the entry level Gyokuro from Dento Hon. Dry, it smells delicious: toasty and direct. Its first infusion tastes very deep, dominated by soft, low green notes. Its flavour profile references algae and popcorn. This is a less complex gyokuro than others we carry from this producer, and well suited for everyday drinking. It offers us a very pleasant dose of umami, L-theanine and chlorophyll.
