Gyokuro, meaning "jade dew," hails from the Uji district of Honshu, Japan, and is considered one of the country's premier teas.

It's no wonder this is a highly sought tea from Japan. Twenty days of shading by bamboo prior to harvesting increases the tea plant's chlorophyll content, resulting in dark green leaves and more antioxidants for your health. If you can get your hands on these teabags (this particular tea often sold out), you should steep for two to four minutes to produce a pale green color and a sweet and balanced flavor.
