You can drink and eatthese tea leaves!

This sublime, Japanese Gyokuro tea is clearly distinguished in superior quality by its large, extremely carefully selected green tea leaves that are picked entirely by hand, so that you only pick the soft leaves. In a country where almost all tea harvesting is done mechanically, this is truly exceptional! With machine picking, such as the Gyokuro Sasahime, you also have some of the stems with you, which can still provide a very subtle bitter taste. These parts of the tea plantation are not accessible for harvesting with machines, but still produce tea leaves with many nutrients. Hand-picked tea leaves also don’t taste wry at all. You can pour this top tea after 3 or 4 times, so also eat it. So be sure to try the wet leaves with a few drops of balsamic vinegar. Delicious and extremely healthy!

 

This tea comes from Kagoshima in the Japanese province of Kyushu, known for its organic cultivation. This tea is grown by Sakamoto, an organic tea farmer and master of the covering principle of this sublime tea (see below). It is known for the complete biological process of treating and processing both the tea plant and the soil. The latter is very rare in Japan, where pesticides are still the common to offer a stable taste, with the health consequences that this entails.

Gyokuro (Gyoku/Jade, Ro/Tears) tea owes its intense green colour to cultivation in a shady plantation that is covered for 20 days, reducing photosynthesis and preventing L-theanine from being converted into the bitter chemical component Catechin. This creates the typical Umami taste in this delicious bright green tea. These gyokuro tea leaves are also used to make matcha.

 

Green tea has a high content of antioxidants that are known to protect the body from diseases and are an important part of a healthy diet. In addition, the tea contains caffeine that makes you active and L-theanine that calms you down. A super means to definitely taste!

Some Tips

Also with green tea you can create a unique taste explosion in combination with food, like wine does. Compared to wine, tea also has a number of advantages, it does not contain alcohol which keeps you clear and fresh and it is naturally more complementary to food. Wine can sometimes surpass the taste of the food. Green tea goes with the dishes that white wine goes with. Japanese green tea goes perfectly with seafood, fish and rice dishes.
