From Ippodo

Kanro’s plentiful umami and long finish make it a good gyokuro for slowly sipping in small servings. Try this tea for your first taste of Ippodo gyokuro.

Kanro’s name means “sweet dew,” and this tea has a plentiful rich character until the last drop. We recommend Kanro to those drinking Ippodo gyokuro for the first time, as an introduction to the rich experience that this category of tea has to offer, and as a representative of Ippodo gyokuro. We also recommend this tea as cold brew, to taste the full potential of its deep umami and sweetness.

This review might be a bit unfair as I received the tea from my cousin, and I’m not /certain/ how old it is or how well stored it had been. That said, it did appear to be stored in a tightly sealed container.

Ippodo is not kidding around about the umami flavor. It dominates over the vegetal tones and I couldn’t detect a hint of bitterness. There was an odd sharpness to the aroma that I’m not certain I enjoy. Still, this is an intriguing tea, and I recommend investigating it for yourself.
