        This one is my favorite green tea. Sweet undertones and brews perfectly at 165 degrees for 3 minutes and 45 seconds.

        I found this to be just as enjoyable as the very popular and similarly-priced Yame Gyokuro.

        Not quite as flavorful as the Yame more syrupy and not as refreshing, I would recommend the Yame if you are trying to decide.

        I enjoy both this and the Yame (same price). I recommend trying one of each and rotating to appreciate the subtleties of each. Both are delightful.

        It's very light, but sweet with nice umami flavour. I can get four or five 90-100ml infusions out of it and each time it's subtly different, but consistently sweet. It's not in your face, and you appreciate it as it tingles your lips and then afterwards with traces of lingering flavour.  And for less than $30 for 100g it's a great value, and a good Gyokuro for someone who prefers theirs light and refreshing.

        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.

        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'
