'''Gyokuro''' (玉露) is a type of shaded green tea and considered to be one of the highest grades of green tea in Japan. Gyokuro differs from [[Kabusecha]] (covered tea) in the length of time it's under the shade and percentage of covering. While gyokuro is shaded for up to three weeks and is 70-90% shaded kabusecha is shaded only for approximately one week at 50%. Gyokuro has a dark green color, and when brewed it is slightly sweet, with a refreshing aroma. While most [[sencha]] is made from [[Yabukita]] (薮北) [[cultivar]], gyokuro is often made from a specialized variety such as Asahi, Okumidori, Saemidori or Yamakai.
