        Why are there no reviews after 2017?

        I guess no one reviewed it since then...

        2022 Batch. Modern umami dominated flavour profile. Subtle, short-lived complexity underneath. No bitterness, minimal astringency. I find low value for my personal tastes.

        This tea is wonderful to drink every morning. I brew it st 160° F for 3 minutes. It’s smells wonderful and flavor is sweet without the tang. Color is a nice golden geeen color. One of my favorites.

        This is an excellent gyokuro, quite rare. It has very delicate taste, in many ways more interesting than other gyokuros. Great aroma and leaf. I will be buying this item periodicaly. Definitely superb value.

        A very good Gyokuro certainly worth trying. It seemes somewhat more delicate than other gyokuros, possibly adequate for those who like a less greeny/spinachy taste to their gyokuro. however it does posses a pleasant green taste and a long lasting clean tannin feel in the mouth. An enjoyable and very good tea, hardish to brew as you would expect.

        I've drunk my last cup of this superb gyokuro and like every sip of this tea. I really cant find better gyokuro than this. I liked it more than Kame Jirushi.

        This site has fantastic gyokuro in general, so when I say that the Tsuru-Jiru-Shi is the best that really means something. This tea is absolutely stunning in every way. The leaf lets off a fantastic aroma and the brew packs a serious punch, an explosion

        Excellent! Sweeter and clearer than the Kame Jiru Shi, my favorite gyokuro so far. I will now have to alternate between both I guess. The price is evidently quite high, less expensive than a good bottle of Champagne though.
        Not difficult at all to brew if you keep to parameters.
