        Is your packaging resealable.

        Hello,

        Some of our teas are, but this particular one is not resealable. You will need to seal it up well or put it into some kind of container.

        Excellent tea, be careful with the brew!

        A delicious high-quality gyokuro. The more I brew this one, the more I like it. Brewing times/temperatures are tricky with this one. I can get several steepings from it. This one is light, subtle, and sweet with a light color. It's one of the sweeter Gyokuro's I've tasted. Although it's a great tea, I prefer the Uji Yume no Ukihashi since it has a little more body.

        Outstanding tea that is perfect every morning. It is slightly sweet and mellow and brews perfectly at 165 degrees for 3.5 minutes. This is one of my favorites.

        This is excellent tea! Easy to brew following your directions and can be steeped many times.

        From the moment I opened the packaging and took that first whif, I knew I would enjoy this tea. If brewed correctly, it has a nice, sweet taste on the first infusion with a flavour that lingers long after your cup is empty. I would recommend this tea to any first time gyokuro drinker.
