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.

As a gift for someone special or for yourself, we have packaged our Kakurei in this attractive can with our trademark orange Ippodo label. This small-sized can is about a 10-day supply for someone who enjoys their tea once or twice a day.
Encased in a gift box and special Ippodo wrapping paper.
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.
