I’m not quite a gyokhead, but I can tell this one is of superior quality. It has very little of the butter and sesame flavors you’ll find in cheaper (but still good) gyokuro, with instead an intense sweet and sour tang and spectacular body. I’ve noticed that pricier gyokuro tends to exhibit a citric note, and this one has that in spades. Like many other high-end green teas, this one is much more fruity than it is vegetal.

I’m a 27-year-old man who didn’t like tea until college, then downed a dozen teabags a day before switching to loose leaf. I’ve been drinking gongfu style every day since about 2015, and could hardly imagine life without it.
