Hello, I followed your interesting workshop in the Netherlands (Sunday 19th Marsh). You explaned the difference between Tencha leaves, Kabusecha and Gyokuro. But I have still a question : is Gyokuro tea ONLY handpicked tea or are some Gyokuro plants automatically harvested ? And how are the Tencha leaves & the Kabusecha harvested ? Many thanks for your reply. Veerle Stoffels

Dear Veerle, thank you for the question. Gyokuro is largely picked by hand but there is also Gyokuro harvested by machines. Tencha and Kabuse Sencha are mostly harvested by machines.
