JEWEL OF DEW



Prized for its delicate aroma and natural sweetness, this limited-edition collection is exclusively available online at TWGTea.com and at selected TWG Tea Salons & Boutiques in Singapore.

 

One of the most treasured green teas from Japan, Hon-Gyokuro is reverently known as the Jewel of Dew. Perfected by only a handful of Japan’s most renowned tea planters over the years, these exquisite Hon-Gyokuro harvests are traditionally cultivated using authentic techniques and process, and hand-picked to bring the cream of the crop direct from award-winning plantations right to your teacup.

 

1. Growing Gyokuro

Cultivated with love and care, the tea plants are sheltered at least 17-25 days before harvest with hand braided rice mats known as Komo. Gently shading the tea plants from the harsh sunlight, these mats allow chlorophyll levels to develop and produce deep, jade hued leaves and an infusion rich in grassy notes known as Ooi-ka.

 

2. Harvesting Gyokuro

Harvesting takes place only once a year in early May, where the tea leaves are all handpicked directly from the delicate tea plant and processed within the same day. Available in extremely limited quantities, each harvests yield less than 5 kilos every year.

 

3. Maturing Gyokuro

Gyokuro is stored in a wooden tea box known as Cha-Bako, where it is left to rest after the processing stage.
