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 gyokuro connoisseur with a discerning taste, Ippoen is an excellent choice. Rich in umami, smooth in texture and virtually void of astringency,Ippoen offers devoted gyokuro tea lovers a superlative tea at an attractive price.
Though less full-bodied than Tenka-ichi, Ippoen is a true connoisseur-class gyokuro that is a favorite among our patrons.

In response to our customers-requests, we now offer this luxurious tea in this special 50g bag. The smaller size optimizes freshness, and is ideal if you are an "occasional" gyokuro drinker, or if you are trying this tea for the first time.
One 50g bag makes approximately 5 kyusu (Japanese teapot) servings.
  • 1. Place 10g (2 tbsp.)
    in kyusu teapot.
  • 2. Add 210 ml (7 oz) of chilled water.
  • 3. Brew for 15 min.
  • * Make another pot using the same tea leaves. Brew the 2nd pot for 7min., and the 3rd pot for 3 min.
