Cultivated variety: Gokou
Shading period: 27 days

Harvested from our tea fields in Yubune, Wazuka, the tea fields selected for Gyokuro were covered for 27 days prior to harvesting. Using the Gokou variety, the self that is used to shade the tea fields were also built by the team during Winter.

By selecting only the youngest tea shoots, Gyokuro is known for its strong umami taste. Furthermore, after brewing the tea leaves for your drink, you cann also eat them as they are rich in nutrition. 

Watch the harvesting process for our Gyokuro here.

The First Flush, usually in Spring, is also known as the first harvest of the season. Only the youngest and most tender shoots are harvested. We hope you feel the tranquility of Wazuka with each sip.

  • Seicha processing: To further emphasise the charm of our tea, d:matcha works closely with wholesalers during the processing phase. After the tea leaves are harvested, rolled, and dried, excess stem or powder are also carefully extracted. These tea leaves are gently reheated, but not to the point of roasting, to further highlight the aroma and taste of the tea.
