Gyokuro Asahi is a Japanese rarity of the top class, which is also called “Dew of a Pearl” or “Most Exquisite Dew Drop”. The tea shrubs grow in the shade of broad-leafed trees and are covered with bamboo mats two weeks before plucking. The fine, regular leaf has a deep green, slightly shining colour and gives off a noble, strong flavour with a hint of sweetness; an impressive mixture of tender mildness and the typical Japanese tanginess. The leaves may be brewed two to three times, with a slightly longer brewing time.
