Taste Notes

For seasoned gyokuro drinkers who prefer a slightly lighter umami taste, Kakurei is an excellent choice. Still characteristic of gyokuro’s green umami flavor and aroma, Kakurei will have a shorter, lighter aftertaste that is popular for casual, relaxed tea drinking. If you find that you like the basic character of Kakurei, but want a tea a bit more full-bodied, try our Rimpo.

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.
