Taste Notes

Rich in umami, smooth in texture, and virtually void of astringency, Ippoen is a top-class gyokuro that is a favorite among our patrons. We recommend enjoying Ippoen’s full-bodied, but elegant character slowly at contemplative tea sessions. We also recommend this tea as cold brew, to taste the full potential of its deep umami and sweetness.

Beautiful jade color when brewed. I like a bit longer of a steep so I can get full flavor. If you like green tea but haven’t had Gyokuro I wouldn’t even say you’ve had green tea yet - it’s a full experience with this tea. So beautiful. 5 stars

High quality, high price

An excellent tea but not necessarily excellent value. The freshness was not in doubt, and I would purchase again.
