My first gyokuro- coming from senchas and dragonwells, the umami and overall complexity of this tea kind of kicked me in the face- but not in a bad way. Very interesting, but definitely not an everyday tea for me. Also, I followed the instructions from Den’s, but I think I may have used a little too much leaf/not enough water. Anyway, I’m going to do another infusion later, I’d like to try and pull out a little more sweetness in that one.
