Kanro - 50g
Kanro's plentiful umami and long finish make it a good gyokuro for slowly sipping in small servings. Try this tea for your first taste of Ippodo gyokuro.
Kanro’s name means “sweet dew,” and this tea has a plentiful rich character until the last drop. We recommend Kanro to those drinking Ippodo gyokuro for the first time, as an introduction to the rich experience that this category of tea has to offer, and as a representative of Ippodo gyokuro. We also recommend this tea as cold brew, to taste the full potential of its deep umami and sweetness.

I'm new to gyokuro and a novice with quality teas in general. I've been getting into matcha and a bit of sencha recently, so I decided to give gyokuro a try as well and bought this one since it was recommended for beginners. On the first sip I thought that maybe gyokuro wasn't for me. By the end of the cup I was making plans to buy more.
Mild and sweet. Best Gyokuro I ever had.
Good and easy to start with Gyokuro. Make sure you prepare it according to the instructions, don't sip it too long, not too hot water.
Explosion of taste from sweet to salty to umami and a flavor moving from herbaceous/iodine to a slightly oxidized apple and a loooooong finish. It is really a beautiful one.
The order was easily placed, the tea arrived timely, the quality is fresh.
I enjoy this fine, delicate tea as a pleasant way to relax and prepare for art making.
In short description: explosion of flavors! Complex and rich.
