Review I just finished my order of Gyokuro Premium. I have tried gyokuro a few times before, both at home and at tea houses and this was by far the best experience I've had with gyokuro to date. This wasn't an everyday tea for me, but something special to savor during quiet moments. Steeping this tea with cooler and smaller amount of water really opened up some interesting aspects of gyokuro that were new to me (130 degrees (f) and 150ml water / 90 seconds)... a very rich and complex flavor on the first steeping that was still very drinkable up to the 4th.

I did notice the flavor of the tea changing (losing it's oomph) over time... I would recommend drinking this as soon as possible once you open the package. the complexities of flavor require it to be as fresh as possible. definitely something I will order again... and next time I won't give it the opportunity to sit around before I drink it all :)
Very bad...Bad...Very bad...Ordinary...Good... 5 of 5 Stars!
