    Simply spectacular! I am new to Japanese green teas. I have been drinking Dragon Well and Wuyi rock oolongs for over a decade. I had a chance to visit Uji a few months ago and got hooked on Japanese green teas. The depth and the complexities of the flavors are amazing. A truly elegant tea.

    My favorite tea. I've tried many different Gyokuro teas and this one is consistently excellent.

    Very nice tea. This is my first time trying gyokuro and this did not disappoint. So different from senchas. Very umami. I can describe it like drinking a savory sweet mushroom broth.
    I've tried 2 methods of brewing them. Each are great for trying out this gyokuro.
    1. The 50°c temp for 2 mins. Very nice umami taste and so fresh. I can do 3 steeps with this method before the flavor runs out.
    2. Brewing the gyokuro for 12-15mins at room temp. Umami espresso but i can only do 2 steeps with this one.

    Have ordered various Gyokuro's ranging in price from O-Cha and other tea vendors and by far for me, Yume no Ukihashi provides an optimum balance of flavor, sweetness and cost per cup that can not be beat.

    I love this tea, have been getting my tea from here for years. Very good flavor and taste amazing after several steeps.

    Truly outstanding Gyokuro. Well worth the price. I brew this one rich, at least 5 grams leaf per 2 ounces water. The result is a deep, sweet infusion that must be sipped slowly to savor the moment ... a "must sit down moment"! Be sure to smell the dry leaves warming in the preheated pot.

    It's worth the price. Have some other gyokuro's from here and this is far the best of them.

    Best Gyokuro I've had. Amazing flavour and well worth the price.

    Around what date will the first flush of this Gyokuro be available to buy?

    Sometime in the fall because higher quality gyokuro is aged a few months after harvest.

    This is a question about cooling the water. For first infusion, I pour into the yuzamashi, then the cups, then the shiboridashi. That way, I am at 60 degrees. But, the next infusion, the shibo has leaves in it, so I can only use the yuzamashi and cups to cool it, and they are still warm. How do you cool the water on the 2nd and later infusions? Thank you!

    The 2nd infusion isn't as critical regarding temperature as the 1st. Another way is to simply leave the water in the other vessels a bit longer.
