Experience the essence of gyokuro with our finest brand

Experience the essence of gyokuro with our finest brand

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 the most discerning of gyokuro connoisseurs, Ippodo is extremely pleased to offer Tenka-ichi-our finest gyokuro. Rich in umami, smooth in texture, Tenka-ichi is the ultimate gyokuro for those with a discriminating taste and a thirst for unsurpassed excellence.

As a gift for a family, office or other group of people, or for an avid tea drinker, we have packaged our Tenka-ichi in this attractive large-sized can with our trademark orange Ippodo label.

Inside the can, the tea leaves are packaged in two separate bags to maximize freshness.
