I am pleased to introduce some fine delicate freshly prepared Japanese green teas to England. These speciality teas are superb quality and very easy to make. Although they may seem relatively expensive, they last a long time and so are in fact good value for money.

Gyokuro Tea bags 25 bags

9) Gyokuro Tea bags 25 bags

There are two grades of green tea leaves: one is superior quality ‘Gyokuro’ and other is normal ‘Sencha’ green tea. ‘Gyokuro’ has a darker colour and slightly stronger taste. Originally ‘Gyokuro’ was drunk by aristocrats in Japan as a medicine. Since it is grown and produced with extra care, it is normally quite expensive. It is very rare to be able to get it in tea bag form.

These tea leaves are picked around May time, and during Summer they are stored for an extra length of time. This extra storage enhances the flavour. Leaves for tea bags are cut smaller than those for loose tea, in order for the flavour to infuse properly. So these teabags taste just as good as the loose tea - there is no compromise in quality.

Connoisseur Corner

In this corner, I would like to introduce some very authentic Japanese tea, which isn't widely available.

Matcha Tea is famous for its use in the tea ceremony, but there are two kinds of Matcha, 'Koicha' (Thick tea) and 'Usucha' (thin tea).

Authentic Gyokuro is different from ordinary green tea:- you make it in different way, and appreciate it in a different way. You can experience the depth of Japanese green tea from this tea.

Matcha Tea ‘Hoshi no mukashi’ (Usucha)

17) Matcha Tea ‘Hoshi no mukashi’ (Usucha)

Usucha is standard Matcha, and looks like normal green tea with froth. This is used for larger group tea ceremonies. This particular matcha is regularly used by ‘Edo Senke Meishinan’ (Tea Master) You use roughly one tea spoon for one Matcha cup.

Matcha Tea ‘Seiho’ (Koicha)

18) Matcha Tea ‘Seiho’ (Koicha)

Koicha is used for making thick tea (no froth). Normally it is used for small group tea ceremonies, and the same cup of Koicha is shared between the whole group. It is said that this type of tea ceremony is very special and the quality of tea leaves is slightly better than the other one. It looks like thick potage soup, so you use 3 tea spoon per person.

Yame Hon Gyokuro Tea

19) Yame Hon Gyokuro Tea

This Gyokuro is grown in the traditional way and the quality is second to none. You need to make it with tepid water at 40 degrees. Like the tea ceremony, the making of this tea needs to be precise. It has quite a different flavour from normal green tea. Some Japanese Gyokuro connoiseur enjoy this incredible delicacy. Once you master how to make proper Gyokuro, you will be a true connoiseur of green tea.

Gyokuro loose tea

21) Gyokuro loose tea

This tea has a distinct delicate Gyokuro flavour and is different from 'Yame Hon Gyokuro'. We recommend you use a tea pot. It is easy to make, tasting good even with water heated to between 70 - 80 degrees, whereas some other Gyokuro teas require more specific temperatures in order to taste good.
