Premium Select Gyokuro 30g: Premium Select Gyokuro is the rarest and most delectable gyokuro Ippodo produces.

Ippoen 50g: Ippoen is a tea ripe with luscious, clear, and elegant umami. Its finish is long and beautiful.

Online Event Access: We are hosting complimentary online tea sessions over the next several weeks for those who purchase this set.

This set focuses on helping customers discover the depth and quality of Premium Select Gyokuro. We selected Ippoen from our regular offering of gyokuro as a comparison. Ippoen is a favorite for gyokuro fans and one of our highest-quality blends. It features an elegant character and plentiful richness. In contrast, Premium Select Gyokuro is a limited-release blended from the rarest gyokuro harvests in Kyoto prefecture. It has clear, pure, dew-like umami that keeps undulating and blossoming long after swallowing.

Each session is 30 minutes.

Everyone, regardless of experience with gyokuro or Japanese tea, is welcome to attend. For those who have tried gyokuro before, the session will feel comfortable. However, if you are new to gyokuro, don’t worry! We will start with a brief introduction of this tea category to get everyone on the same page. Be prepared for a unique tasting experience, as gyokuro offers a savory, lush umami flavor that is unlike any tea you’ve tried before.
