Taste Notes

For the gyokuro connoisseur with a discerning taste, Ippoen is an excellent choice. Rich in umami, smooth in texture and virtually void of astringency, Ippoen is a true connoisseur-class gyokuro that is a favorite among our patrons.

Gyokuro

Being a shade-cultivated tea, gyokuro is rich in theanine-an amino acid responsible for gyokuro's full-bodied mellow sweetness and slightly viscous nature. In Japan, there is a special name for this taste: umami. Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste.

While many teas are served hot and consumed as a means to quench a thirst, gyokuro is different. A typical serving is a precious 1/3 of a teacup at a very comfortable 60 C. Indeed, gyokuro's refined luxurious taste is meant to be savored, not rushed.
