The Wegmans brand (varietal unknown) was quite good. This was the first gyokuro I had the opportunity to try. I looked online and everyone had a different opinion on how to prepare it. I picked one and went with it, with good results! No bitterness whatsoever.

Now referred to as “Mount Kenya Black Tea,” from what I can tell. Good hot or iced; keeps well in the fridge overnight after steeping. The tin I had was very smooth and mellow!

The best black tea I have ever tasted! Do use boiling water, as the directions suggest - the flavor is radically different (and not as good) if the water isn’t boiling when steeping begins.

Preparation
Boiling 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 16 OZ / 473 ML

Worthwhile! Tear the sachet open, though, and infuse it in a basket. The sachets are too small, especially for the second infusion. Steeped just off the boil per package directions.
