From Tealand.sk

A special type of aging Gyokuro which aged for 4 years. This way the taste will be more delicate and the fragrance will be more intensive. The tea comes from the factory Gokoh located in a small village Asahina in the Shizuoka perfercture.

Wow..this is what i needed. This is how quality gyokuro should taste like. When i fist tried the gyokuro i bought in Japan i thought that i will never get this quality here in my country. I was wrong. I was surprised to see an aging Gyokuro in the offer of our local tea dealer. This is something you have to try..so i’ve ordered it.
I opened the tea pack an “booom” a very intensive but fresh fragrance came out. How is this even possible? After 4 years? My mother came to the kitchen and asked what’s this strong tea smell :)
The leafs were nice and clean, had dark green color..usuall for gyokuros.
First steep – nice bright green color, not the really clean transparent one, but more like milky (milky way :-)). Again very nice fragrance and the taste….Oh MY GOSH!! So deep, so many layers, so mature, so fresh even after so many years, so long and strong aftertaste – fruity, grassy, woody, milky…and very tasty!
I did 5 steeps. The fifth one was weak, but usually if you have fresh japanese teas, you can be happy to make 3 good steeps.
If you see this somewhere…you have to get it. It’s very rare and very good. I got it for 17,30EUR for 30g, but hell it was good investement
