Kakurei - 100g
With mild umami and a medium-short finish, Kakurei is an easy-to-drink gyokuro, good for during or after a meal, and throughout the day.
Kakurei brews a cup with medium-light aftertaste and body, with gyokuro’s typical flavor and aroma. We recommend this tea to those who prefer a lighter amount of umami, and as a tea to drink throughout the day. In addition to the standard gyokuro brew with 140°F water, you can try brewing Kakurei with hotter water for 30 seconds, producing a more refreshing, aromatic character.

A fantastic medium-bodied gyokuro. Smooth, rich in umami with very little bitterness or astringency, with a refreshing and long-lasting sweet finish reminiscent of shortbread cookies.
Great tea for when you want something light and soothing. It has a distinct mouth feel that is more viscous than normal tea, which makes it more substantial. The taste is rounded and less bitter than other green tea. Color is a light green with a bit cloudiness. It doesn’t upset my stomach like other green tea when I drink too much of it.
Refreshing and smooth, with addictive and long aftertaste.
Smooth and flavorful.
It's got a good meaty spunk to it, with a mouthfeel like I'm biting into a mushroom. Really starts the day out nice. Would buy again, probably will, but next time I'm going to explore something different in this category.
