Moriuchi's Gyokuro is meticulously grown in the shade for four weeks from the saemidori ("clear green") cultivar, which results in a smooth, elegant, and umami taste. Due to the labor required, a limited amount is produced every year.

Run by a husband-and-wife team, the Moriuchi Tea Farm in Shizuoka has been around since the Edo Period and earned a distinction as a tea farm for the Imperial Court in 2002.

Ingredients: green tea

Behind the name:

  • MORIUCHI is the name of the farmer
  • GYOKURO is the type of tea; gyokuro is shade-grown green tea as opposed to sencha, which is grown in the sun
  • SAEMIDORI is the cultivar

What is a reserve tea? Reserve teas are teas that offer in limited quantities due to the availability of the tea itself.
