    This is hands down one of the best teas I have ever had. I'll take a cup of this over matcha any day of the week.

    One of my most beloved teas. Mild with a nice stimulating effect. My stomach loves it even more!

    This is definitely true quality!!  1g/30ml, 55C, 105sec first steep. No bitterness whatsoever, very very mellow, clear, sweet. Long buttery creamy after taste.  I have not tried the Kamejirushi but definitely up there among the best gyokuros I have tasted.

    Easy to brew (as long as you follow the brewing instructions), this gyokuro is a high quality one. I brew it at 2g/30ml water and got five good steeps of it.
