From Harimaenseicha

About 20 days before the first harvest these tea leaves are covered in order to shut out sunlight and intensify flavor. This high quality tea boasts the unique, aromatic flavor of “Covered tea leaves”.

Spring 2017 harvest.

The only Gyokuro I have tasted so far, so I can’t say how it compares with others, but I love it. It has all the characteristics one would expect from a Gyokuro – strong umami, very vegetal, mid to high astringency and sweet aftertaste.

For brewing, I would usually use this method with shorter first brew of about 8 to 10 minutes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F_QY9Ben4Hg
