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.

Ways to Prepare

Our standard recipe for brewing loose-leaf gyokuro. Brew a cup when you feel you need a change of pace. The concentrated umami in the cup can feel as though it had been squeezed out of freshly-picked tea leaves. To get all the umami, make sure to cool the water sufficiently after boiling.

Cold brewing brings out the most sweetness and umami from the leaves. Wait in anticipation while the full deliciousness seeps out, then enjoy the ultimate taste. Drink as an accompaniment when you have the time to relax or on your day off. The rush of umami the moment you sip the tea brings a firm sense of happiness.
