Just as bit of trivia for you all, in the above table 玉露, gyokuro, is a premium variety of green tea, with a very rich and deep flavour and a significantly higher caffeine kick. 100% gyokuro tea is perhaps a bit strong for many people, but when blended with ordinary green tea it adds an extra bite to the drink, although even just a single 500ml bottle can give me a serious and slightly unpleasant caffeine buzz.

I can get away with many cups of tea, though; it’s just coffee’s (and dark chocolate’s, and gyokuro green tea’s) caffeine that does me in.
If you live in the Kansai area, it’s worth heading over to Uji to taste fresh gyokuro on its home ground.
