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.
