What is Gyokuro green tea?
Gyokuro is a highly prized tea in Japan. Its production is very limited and the process to cultivate and harvest is extremely tedious. Gyokuro is shaded for 3 - 4 weeks prior to harvest, which results in its delicate and extremely smooth renown taste profile.
This step also increases the level of chlorophyll in the plants. In addition, it does increase the caffeine and theanine in the tea as well.

History of Nakai Tea House
The Nakai family has been cultivating tea in the village of Wazuka, Kyoto since the late 17th century. The 6th tea master, Masao Nakai started Japan's very first organic tea farming in 1980.
I learned about Nakai Tea House from my Aunt Yumiko who resides in Osaka. She and I share many similar interests and one of them is to sought out healthy alternatives especially when it comes our food and beauty products.
