Uji, near Kyôto, is the most important area for the culture of gyokuro. The second one, more and more appreciated, is Fukuoka, on the island of Kyûshû.

The deep-green leaves of this tea are finely rolled, homogeneous and shiny. They offer the typical soft aroma of gyokuro and their pale liquor has a powerful taste, both strong and smooth, with a pleasant strength. 

The brewing process is the same as for the Hikari gyokuro from Uji: brew, for about two minutes, 1g of leaves in 10cl of water around 50/60°C.


Tea and health

Recent books and studies seem to prove that green tea plays an essential role, not only in preventing, but also in treating cardiovascular dusease and some types of cancer. In his books, David Servan-Schreiber has stressed the presence in green tea of a catechin, the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). This powerful antioxidant is capable of neutralizing the reactive oxygen species and the free radicals heavily involved in aging and in chronic degenerative diseases. Researches have shown that  the EGCG may have beneficial effects against numerous illnesses, like atherosclerosis, diabetes, neurodegenerative diseases or overweight. In Chinese traditional medicine, it is recommended for intellectual work, to reduce fatigue by stimulating the nervous system, to lower body temperature, enhance eyesight, reinforce the immune system, help digestion... It is important to underline that the green tea that is evoked here is of good quality and, of course, straight, plain green tea!
