Very exciting news. Salvador Sosa of Sinensis is making available to TeaForum members a limited edition Gyokuro from Yokkaichi, Mie. This is an exclusive offer to our members at whole sale price! A umami rich and elegant AAA Sae Midori cultivar Gyokuro. A few tasting notes I shared last week are below. It is an excellent Gyokuro that was produced in a very limited amount of only ten kilos, with only five kilos beings made available to sell outside Yokkaichi.

This is an exciting opportunity for us to do a side-by-side comparison with our other exclusive special offer Tokusen Gyokuro from Ippodo. If Ippodo order members want to save on shipping - I can combine the two orders - but we should act quickly. FYI, all special offers at TeaForum are offered at cost to members.

Let me know - by replying below - if you are interested in participating in this Special Offer.
50 grams Yokkaichi Gyokuro 35$ wholesale
Limited quantities are available.

I'm jazzed to share this high quality gyokuro with you!

Having a treat with a very limited edition, Sae Midori Gyokuro sold by Sinensis out of Tijuana. Sinensis director Salvador Sosa in partnership with Mite Co located in Mie, made this gyokuro available at the Los Angeles Tea Festival. This premium gyokuro is not sold at their online store, and was produced by Hagimura Seicha in Yokkaichi very close to Suzuka. Only 10kgs were made, 2 of which went to a tea contest in Japan in which they placed 5th, and 3kgs stay in their store in Yokkaichi, so only 5kgs was available to sell. The handpicked leaves are beautifully well-formed, long dark glossy green needles. It is an umami rich gyokuro, with a complex profile and warming notes of cooker bread and delicate fruit. Thick mouthfeel. Excelente! A very elegante gyokuro.

Steeped in Shiboridashi 150ml by Tani Seiuemon (b. 1913) made of Shigaraki clay.

Yeah, excited that we are going to have a good group participating in both gyokuro tastings. TeaForum’s inaugural first group tasting event 🎉

Salvador’s Yokkaichi Gyokuro is shipping locally so I should get it pretty fast, in time I think to ship both gyokuro orders together.


This special offer will close Sunday midnight Pacific Time :) 🍃
