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.

While many teas are served hot and consumed as a means to quench a thirst, gyokuro is different. A typical serving is a precious 1/3 of a teacup at a verycomfortable 60 C. Indeed, gyokuro's refined luxurious taste is meant to be savored, not rushed.

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.

As a gift for someone special or for yourself, Ippodo is pleased to offer this tea in a special-edition black lacquered metal can with gold lettering. Exclusive to Kanro, this attractive small can is about a 9-day supply for someone who enjoys their Kanro once or twice a day. Encased in a gift box and special Ippodo wrapping paper.
