Among the Yamashita Gyokuro, this tea is the most affordable. It may well be used as an "initiation" into the compilation of Yamshita's expert teas. When infused with water at lower temperatures, it emanates a soft and sweet aroma; when infused with hotter water, it will leave a clean and refreshing aftertaste. This is a wonderful gift item for someone special who understands the nuances of Japanese green tea.

In contrast to the very popular Shincha (freshly-harvested tea), Nomigoro belongs to the Kuradashi Cha (out-of-the-storehouse tea) category. As with good wine, it takes many years to mature its distinct flavor. Tea expert, Yamashita Toshikazu, keeps this Gyokuro in a cold storehouse for about 5 years to produce an especially potent sweetness and mellow flavour. The thick leaves create an emerald-coloured beverage with a soft, palatable texture. The supreme quality of the tea leaves allow for their pleasant flavour to be maintained even up to 4-5 servings.
