Superior Japanese Green Tea MaikoTea JAPAN
This tea is one of Maiko Tea's most popular items. It is made with good quality leaves and, when prepared, produces the typical sweetness characteristic to Gyokuro. The sweet flavour is accompanied by a very subdued and mellow astringency. Preparing the tea with hot water will not create a bitter flavour.
Susuricha is the supreme method of preparing and tasting Gyokuro tea. It involves sipping the green tea from a Susuri cup. Gyokuro, with its mild sweetness and subdued astringency, is considered one of the highest grades of tea in Japan. It steeps at a low temperature, and is consumed slowly in order to savour its unique and rich flavour. Our Susuricha set contains all of the appropriate items needed for you to produce the optimal flavour of tea from Gyokuro leaves.
