Being a shade-cultivated tea, gyokuro is rich in theanine-an amino acid responsible for gyokuro’s full-bodied mellow sweetness and slightly viscous nature.
In Japan, there is a special name for this taste: umami.Generally, the higher the grade, the richer the umami taste.
While many teas are served hot and consumed as a means to quench a thirst, gyokuro is different. A typical serving is a precious 1/3 of a teacup at a very comfortable 60 C. Indeed, gyokuro’s refined luxurious taste is meant to be savored, not rushed.
For those who want a taste of fine gyokuro at a mid-level price, Rimpo is an excellent choice. With enough umami to represent the true character of gyokuro, Rimpo is the perfect starting point for first-time gyokuro drinkers, as well as easoned drinkers who are accustomed to gyokuro from other tea shops.
As a gift for a family, office or other group of people, or for an avid tea drinker, we have packaged our Rimpo in this attractive large-sized can with our trademark orange Ippodo label.
