From Japanese Green Tea Co.

GOKUZYOHAND SELECTED BY TRAINED TEA MASTER

Gokyuzyo translates literally to “The Highest Grade” in Japanese. Among all the green tea harvested, Gokuzyo is the section of the best tea leaves based on taste, water level, aroma and the quality of the leaf itself. Trained masters (called chya-shi in Japanese) pick the best tea leaves by hand, one leaf at a time. Please enjoy the best of what we offer.

Freshly harvested sprouts are steamed right away and dried. We pick and knead the soft, new leaves gently. The process is fairly simple and may not look elegant, however, the aroma is so intense that it makes you feel as if you just got lost in a green tea processing factory.

You can enjoy this tea which includes twig tea, coarse, broken tea leaves, and powdered tea. Crude tea leaves produce a beautifully colored drink with a mild, unique taste.

About the Tea Bag:

Pyramid tea sachet bag made out of premium quality nonwoven fabric to allow tea to open up fully to get the best aroma and taste out of tea. It is biodegradable and environmentally friendly. Read more about soilon nonwoven fabric we use for our tea bag here.

How to Drink:

1. Dissolve each tea bag into 8 Oz of hot water. We recommend about 175°F.

2. Wait for 60-120 seconds

TeaTiff TTB #1

I was craving a green tea when the box arrived, so this was the first one I pulled out. I’ve had some bad experiences with Japanese green tea in the past, but this one is delightful! It steeps up to a bright lime green and has a delightfully smooth, delicate vegetal flavor. Definitely something I’d consider purchasing on my own. This box is off to a great start!

Flavors: Smooth, Vegetal

2021 Homemade Advent Calendar Swap – Day 20
From Skysamurai.

This is the sachet/tea bag version, but this company also has this same tea in loose leaf form. I’m admittedly not the best judge of this tea because I don’t drink green teas often, and when I do they are typically flavored green teas. That said, this tea isn’t bitter like others I’ve tried so it’s not so bad. Not one I would choose on my own, but it’s interesting to try something new every once in a while.

Its the magic of advent season where we all try things we wouldn’t normally. Glad it wasn’t bitter!
