About the manufacturer


Vice-President at Nagatani Tea Factory

The firm has a long tradition of tea manufacturing in one of the original regions where tea production originated. Uji-tawara is the home of Nagatani Soen who invented the methods for contemporary sencha production. While maintaining this tradition, the manufacturers also aim to produce an equally qualitative tea by observing solely organic farming methods on their in-house tea farms.

Additional comments:

Gyokuro requires a longer steeping at a cooler temperature in order to release most of its umami flavors.
Raise the temperature and steep for shorter periods of time over successive brews for a more varied pleasure of the tea.

  1. Victoria (verified owner)

    This Gyokuro, in my opinion, has a nice relaxing amount of L-Theanine – the calm and happy amino acid in tea. I especially enjoyed the fragrance which added so much to the enjoyment of this tea.

  2. Daria (verified owner)

    Very gentle Gyokuro with a light sweetness.

  3. Richard Panse (verified owner)

    Wow! I never had tea curl my tongue and make me smile like this Gyokuro. My first experience with Gyokuro and it has to be one of the most delicious teas I have ever tried. I follow the brewing hints and it never fails to lift my mood. I never knew tea could do that.
