From Ippodo

Being a shade-cultivated tea, gyokuro is rich in theanine an amino acid responsible for gyokuros 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, gyokuros refined luxurious taste is meant to be savored, not rushed.

For seasoned gyokuro drinkers interested in a tea with a rich, robust character, Ippodo offers Karigane. Unlike the tightly twisted leaves of regular gyokuro, Karigane consists of leaf stems. Highly recommended for gyokuro devotees looking for a high-quality taste at an attractive price.

If you are purchasing this tea for your own consumption, this 100g bag is a good choice. It contains enough tea for about 10 kyusu (Japanese teapot) servings, perfect if you like to drink gyokuro once a day or so. To enjoy the freshest taste, please try to use the tea within 2 weeks of opening the package.
