Taste Notes

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.

Yes

Leaves you (me) wanting more. Flavor like cold blue stone. A river carving itself deeper.

Pure.

Smooth Taste, pale color, not too bitter

This is hands down the best green tea I have had. It’s mild, with hints of floral. I also like that it’s not too bitter. I can’t handle many green teas but I will never buy from anywhere else but here. Very fast shipping as well!

Meh

This is not good quality gyokuro. I'm thinking some of these reviews may have been solicited, or they just don't know their tea (no offense). Perhaps this was a one off, but it wasn't a great first impression. I think I'll look elsewhere.

Delicious

This is a delicious tea that does not have any bitterness, just good flavor.

1st buy

I received my tea but am finishing up my older bag of tea first. The company was prompt in answering my questions and my order was tracked closely. The process was easy. Am definitely looking forward to my new tea!
