This is the first Gyokuro tea that started my addiction to Gyokruo.
Its a little rough and has gone down in quality, despite its increase in price.
Uneven tone in leaves, a bit choppy and not as lusterous as perhaps 2008.
Brew is pale yellow to bright green depending on preparation.
Take care in brewing the second infusion, as tea leaves have already unfurled and will steep faster.
Do not be misguided, this is not near the creme de la creme in the world of Gyokuro.
