Gyokuro Sasahime is meticulously produced using a special cultivation technique known as "shading." About 20 days before the harvest, the tea bushes are carefully shaded from sunlight using traditional straw coverings. This shading process stimulates the growth of tender young leaves, resulting in a distinct flavor profile. After the shading period, the leaves are carefully hand-picked and steamed to preserve their vibrant green color and delicate flavors. This steaming process also helps to enhance the tea's umami characteristics. With its meticulous production and attention to detail, Gyokuro Sasahime embodies the artistry and craftsmanship of Japanese tea making.
