Kanro - 50g
Kanro's plentiful umami and long finish make it a good gyokuro for slowly sipping in small servings. Try this tea for your first taste of Ippodo gyokuro.
Kanro’s name means “sweet dew,” and this tea has a plentiful rich character until the last drop. We recommend Kanro to those drinking Ippodo gyokuro for the first time, as an introduction to the rich experience that this category of tea has to offer, and as a representative of Ippodo gyokuro. We also recommend this tea as cold brew, to taste the full potential of its deep umami and sweetness.

The order was easily placed, the tea arrived timely, the quality is fresh.
I enjoy this fine, delicate tea as a pleasant way to relax and prepare for art making.
In short description: explosion of flavors! Complex and rich.
I've been steeping the Kanro overnight (to get the most out of the umami) in a tea pot to have as a cold brew. A great umami flavor on first several servings. Refreshing drink to have over ice especially during the summer.
Ordering and delivery met expectations.
Wonderful tea, with all the boldness you expect and all the complexity that you hope for. Both exquisite and approachable, truly amazing.
Strong hit of vegetable broth umami at first, leading to a freeze-dried apple sweetness then to bitter greens and a soft limoncello sweetness at the top of the mouth.
Very long and juicy finish, with lasting savory sweetness.
