Being a shade-cultivated tea, gyokuro is rich in theanine-an amino acid responsible for gyokuro's full-bodied mellow sweetness and slightly viscous nature. In Japan, there is a special name for this taste: umami. Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste.

For the seasoned gyokuro drinker who appreciates a rich umami flavor and a slightly thick but smooth texture, Kanro is an excellent choice. With a name that means "sweet dewdrops", Kanro is likened to drops of dew concentrated with sweetness. Though less full-bodied than Ippo-en, Kanro is recommended without reservation for even the most ardent of gyokuro aficionados.

-About One-pot size packs

The key to preparing Japanese green tea properly in a kyusu teapot is the combination of three things - the amount of tea leaves, water temperature, and brewing time. Firstly, the most fundamental aspect is the amount of tea leaves used. It is important to note that the proper amount differs depending on where the leaves were grown and the tea dealer. The proper amount that Ippodo specifies for bringing out the taste that Ippodo wants its customers to enjoy is 10 grams.

In our experience, in the majority of cases where people say that the tea tastes weak or flavorless, less than the proper amount of tea leaves has been used. When people see 10 grams of tea leaves in a kyusu teapot, many are surprised and think it is too much.

With Japanese green tea, you bring out the tea's unique flavor by placing the right amount of tea leaves in the kyusu, using water at the right temperature, and letting it brew for the right amount of time. The higher the quality of the tea leaves, the richer and fuller the umami. It would be a great shame not to fully enjoy that delicious taste.

These one-pot size packs have been designed with the express aim of ensuring that customers fully enjoy the delicious taste our tea, the way it was made to be enjoyed. Each pack comes in a special single-use size filled with just the right amount for making one kyusu pot's worth of tea - the most important factor in producing great-tasting Japanese green tea.
