the effect of shading
When tea leaves are deprived of sunlight, several important chemical processes take place in the plant that brings the unique appearance and flavor of the Gyokuro. Since it is difficult for the leaves to perform photosynthesis when in the shade, plants overproduce chlorophyll molecules and amino acids to make up for it. Chlorophyll is what makes the leaves green and this is the reason why the Gyokuro has a deep green color.
