TWG Tea Invites You To Experience A Harvest Fit For A King

There are few occasions in life when one can experience the work of a master artisan cultivated in an ancestral manner. Photo: Imperial Gyokuro, TWG Tea   TWG Tea, the finest luxury tea brand in the world, has achieved the inconceivable: the curation of a collection of incomparable Hon-Gyokuro teas, which harvests yield less than 5 kilos every year, never before released from Japan.

Gyokuro Minami The Gyokuro Minami is cultivated in Hoshino village according to traditional methods kept secret for four generations. Sheltered for 19 days to produce a grassy bouquet, the needle-like leaves are luminescent and emerald green and yield a heady biscuity flavour when infused which quickly deepens into a gentle sweetness. This award-winning garden produces only 5 kilos of this quality Gyokuro every year. Gyokuro Samurai Several weeks before the harvest, the plantation is shaded to infuse the leaves with chlorophyll, which results in a unique and verdant taste, recognised by connoisseurs worldwide. This intoxicating TWG Tea green tea yields an exquisite nectar, boasting a tannin-free infusion with the sweet scent of fresh grass. A work of art. Imperial Gyokuro TWG Tea is proud to offer privileged tea connoisseurs one of the rarest and grandest teas in the world, the Imperial Gyokuro cultivated by one of Japan’s most renowned tea planters in Yame.

Thanks to gentle breezes and dappled rays of sunlight that filter through the braided straw, this glossy, jade-coloured tea grows very slowly, but in consequence, develops a brilliant sweetness and concentrated flavour.
