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.

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!

Very Satisfying !

This was my first tasting of Ippodo teas. And I have to say that I was truly delighted from the first sip. The aroma awakens the senses. The tea is full-bodied and refreshing at the same time. I am very happy with my purchase.

Wow

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.
