Ippoen - 50g
Ippoen is ripe with luscious, clear, and elegant umami. Its finish is long and beautiful.
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
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
I love to enjoy this tea cold brewed or hot. So good either way.
Excellent tasting gyokuro. Has much umami and a great fragrance.
Worth it, IMO
