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 very comfortable 60 C. Indeed, gyokuro's refined luxurious taste is meant to be savored, not rushed.

For seasoned gyokuro drinkers who prefer a slightly weaker umami taste, Kakurei is an excellent choice. If you find that you like the basic character of Kakurei, but want a tea with a bit less sweetness, then we recommend that you try Tekiro. For a more full-bodied gyokuro, try our Rimpo.

If you are purchasing this tea for your own consumption, this 100g bag is a good choice.
It contains enough tea for about 10 kyusu (Japanese teapot) servings, perfect if you like to drink gyokuro once a day or so. To enjoy the freshest taste, please try to use the tea within 2 weeks of opening the package. If you are trying gyokuro for the first time,
we recommend that you consider starting with a 50g bag of Rimpo instead.
To slowly draw out the tea's rich umami taste in ice-cold water

1. Place 10 g (2 tbsp.) in kyusu teapot.
2. Add 80 ml of ice-cold water.
3. Brew for about 15 to 20 min.
Hint: Don't shake the teapot while brewing. When serving, pour out every last drop.
