₹ 515.00 / 100 grams paper box
Introducing our exclusive Japanese-style green tea, meticulously crafted during the autumn season from select Japanese green tea clones cultivated on the elevated peaks of the renowned Gopaldhara Tea Estate. Sourced from the highest altitudes, these carefully plucked leaves boast reduced tannin content, ensuring a tea experience that is delightfully less bitter.
Harvested in their youthful prime, the tender leaves undergo a process that sets this green tea apart. By skipping oxidation, we preserve the essential antioxidants and polyphenols, guaranteeing a cup that not only tantalizes the taste buds but also offers health benefits. The artful hand-rolling of the leaves facilitates a graceful unfurling when brewed, releasing the full spectrum of flavors.
Our commitment to quality extends to the meticulous post-harvest treatment. Following plucking, the whole tea leaves undergo a steaming process, hand-rolling, polishing, and a unique flattening technique that spans up to four hours. This method, distinct from the conventional Darjeeling FTGFOP1 sorting, imparts a needle-like shape to the leaves, allowing for a remarkably smooth infusion as a substantial portion of the leaf is retained.
The result is a tea with a delicate, light green-colored liquor that embodies a harmonious blend of vegetal and leafy notes, accompanied by sweet honey undertones. Experience a truly refreshing cup with a crisp finish, devoid of any astringency. Elevate your tea ritual with this exceptional Japanese-style green tea, a testament to the craftsmanship and dedication embedded in each leaf.
