Nice everyday gyokuro.

For this price and the amount ( 100g ) it is excellent.

The umami flavour is nice in the 1st infusion, less in the 2nd infusion. In comparison to other gyokuro, the umami flavour of this tea diminish quickly from the 3rd infusion.

Would buy again for everyday gyokuro.

Advantages: Great price as a gyokuro

Disadvantages: Flavour not so intense as compared to other higher end gyokuro.

Uji Gyokuro Shou-Un is an excellent gyokuro for its price.
The first cup has a noticeable thickness in the mouth and on the tongue ,good flavor:smooth finish; Although not as rich as Uji Gyokuro "Tsurujirushi",for everyday and drinking at this price I must agree with the previous review'

I have tasted most of the various Gyokuro's you offer and was surprised that the Shou-un had not been rated yet. I think it is very flavorful and relatively easy to brew compared to some of the others I've tried.

O-Cha.com is an excellent merchant.
