From Mariage Frères

Upstream on the Asahina river running from the Fuji-Yama surroundings, the generous volcanic soil nourrishes this rare and outstanding Gyokuro. On its soft and green slopes, the tea buds are gently covered with straw to prevent them from bright sunlight. After the harvest, the colors turns to a sparkling emerald green giving a refreshing and smooth Gyokuro chosen by the imperial court for its flowery and green fragrance, sensual as a silk velvet, lifted by an unexpected fruity note.

Liqueur précieuse. En amont de la rivière Asahina qui coule aux alentours du Fuji-Yama, la terre volcanique généreuse nourrit ce Gyokuro rare et exceptionnel; Sur ces pentes douces et verdoyantes, les bourgeons de thé sont délicatement recouverts de paille pour les protéger du soleil direct. Après la cueillette, d’un vert émeraude éclatant, ils donnent un Gyokuro moelleux et rafraîchissant choisi par la cour impériale pour son bouquet vert et fleuri, sensuel comme un velours de soie et relevé d’une note fruité inattendue.
Thé pour un empereur.
