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 1/3sit immersup at a very comfortable 60 C. Indeed, gyokuro's refined luxurious taste is meant to be savored, not rushed.

For those who want a taste of fine gyokuro at a mid-level price, Rimpo is an excellent choice. With enough umami to represent the true character of gyokuro, Rimpo is the perfect starting point for first-time gyokuro drinkers, as well as seasoned drinkers who are accustomed to gyokuro from other tea shops.

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.

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.
