Organic Asatsuyu Loose Leaf Green Tea

SKU: MT-LL-ASA-CP

*Please note: Once this product sells through, it will be unavailable until next year's harvest in May (2022). 

A complex and intriguing shade-grown Gyokuro tea with a savory broth-like flavor and satisfying tannins.

Meaning “morning dew” in English, Asatsuyu is a gyokuro tea that's prized for its rich flavor, exceptional aroma, and limited availability. Like our matchas, Asatsuyu is carefully shade-grown prior to harvesting. This process coaxes out all of the umami-rich compounds like theanine and chlorophyll while also decreasing the amount of astringent tannins, resulting in a sweet and full-bodied cup.

What to expect from Asatsuyu: Dark green tea leaves that produce a slightly viscous and sweet cup rich in umami flavors like miso and nori seaweed.
