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 besavored, not rushed.

Each of these convenient, easy-to-use teabags makes one cup of authentic gyokuro tea.
Packed with flavorful mecha (shoots and buds), these tetrahedral teabags release the aroma and flavor of the tea.
To draw out gyokuro's rich umami taste, just let one teabag steep for about one and a half minutes in a cup of hot water—boiled water that has been allowed to cool slightly. Move the teabag around in the hot water until it has reached the desired strength, and you're done. Take your time and draw out the full flavor of this delicious tea.

The small box, which includes instructions on the back in both English and Japanese, also makes for a handy travel companion.
