Our Yame gyokuro is not really an entry level gyokuro, we priced it low and as a result many people have the mistaken idea that it's entry level. That said, Kamejirushi is a very excellent gyokuro, superior to our Yame gyokuro. However, as with all gyokuro, in order to bring the magic out you need to brew it just perfectly and it's tricky. Are you pre-warming all of the brewing vessels? What kind of teapot are you using? A shiboridashi is probably the best for this.
Please review this page and try to brew your Kamejirushi again: <a href="https://www.o-cha.com/brew-gyokuro.html">How to Brew Gyokuro</a>.
I could recommend other gyokuro green teas to you, but knowing Kamejirushi as I do, it's one of our better products and it absolutely will make a stellar cup of tea *if made correctly* so it sounds to me that you may not have mastered the brewing technique for gyokuro. Once you have tried a properly made gyokuro and recognize the unique taste, you will understand.
