Gyokuro is Japan's top grade of Japanese green tea and is highly sought after. Gyokuro tea bushes are carefully shade grown for about three weeks prior to harvesting in order to protect them from sunlight. This process results in maintaining elevated levels of chlorophyll and resulting in a rich green color, a memorable aroma followed with a sweet taste. The theanine (amino acid) content of the leaf increases; the tannin in the tea does not.
