Gyokuro ("Pearl Dew") is the most precious of Japanese teas. A few weeks before harvest time, the tea trees are covered with rice straw or under black tarps. Shielded from the sun, the leaves develop higher quantities of theanine, caffeine and chlorophyll. This delicate tea from the Uji area must be brewed for 2 minutes, in a water at 50 to 60°C. It is possible to make several servings with the same leaves. 

Gyokuro offers a smooth and delicate liquor, with a silky floral bouquet, full of umami.


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!
