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
