Creating organic gyokuro has been something of a holy grail for those interested. Why? Due to the heavy fertilization that is necessary to produce the richness in gyokuro, it has been very difficult to achieve using organic fertilizers. This attempt by Nishide-san and the farmers he works with is quite decent with rich umami flavors that spread across the tongue. 

This Nishide Gyokuro was made from two cultivars that are from the Kyoto prefecture: Gokou and Ujimidori. These two cultivars were specially developed to suit the soil and climate of Kyoto prefecture. Both are cultivars that are very appropriate for shading. That is why they are often made into gyokuro or matcha. With the Gokou cultivar known for its' rich umami and the Ujimidori characteristic of its aromatic characteristics (floral, creamy aroma), please delight in the dance of these two cultivars! Oh, and please don't forget to enjoy across multiple (3-4) steeps.
