The aroma of the vibrantly green leaves (seriously, they are as green as pine needles) is delightfully sweet, a blend of sweet chestnuts, wildflower honey, freshly mown hay, sweetgrass, and a tiny bit of distant wildflowers. Something about the aroma of Japanese green teas (especially the very verdant ones) reminds me ...Read Full Review

I should state off the bat that this was my first gyokuro, and I haven't had the chance to try any other brands since. Furthermore, gyokuro needs to be brewed at a lower temperature than most teas; the first time I made it I didn't realize this, and the tea wound up tasting rather bitter. Properly brewed, however, ther...Read Full Review

This is only the second gyokuro tea I've tried. Its flavor is exactly the way I remember Teavana's, making both of these excellent--but Arbor's far less expensive. So glad I was able to try this one!Read Full Review
The flavor is complex, balanced, and delicious. It naturally tastes a bit sweet so that adding any sweetener would be...

Relatively inexpensive among Gyokuro, especially for being organic. Pleasant, and easy to brew, but less aromatic than other samples of this type of tea I've tried.Read Full Review
Very long, straight leaves, very dark green. Dry leaf has a pleasant aroma, similar to some sencha, and a bit nondescript.

Very nice green tea. It has a flavor somewhere between nutty and also fruity, if green tea were a fruit. Naturally sweet enough, it needs no sweetener. You'll want to steep it briefly and drink it somewhat quickly, as the taste can go bitter even after it's done steeping.Read Full Review
I only wish the price was lower.

As a matter of preference, I should say that my 'ideal' Gyokuro tastes strongly umami, a bit sweet, and grassy/vegetal on the finish. I was able to get Aiya's Gyukuro to display something like this flavor profile - along with a pleasantly sharp, matcha-like aroma - when I brewed a relatively heaping teaspoon of it for ...Read Full Review

I had the opportunity to sample this and Harney and Sons' Heavenly Gyokuro side-by-side. The two teas are comparable in price, and are both top-notch teas, yet they were remarkably different! It's hard for me to say which one I preferred.Read Full Review
The dry leaf of this tea has an aroma peculiarly reminiscent of an airplane ...

one of the best teas Teavana offers. Healthy for its high chlorophyll and antioxidants. Delicious and stands up to multiple steepings with great flavor. Brews a light yellow green at 140 for 45 seconds to 1 minuteRead Full Review

This is one of my favorite teas, it's good any time of year. Gyokura Imperial (to me) epitomizes what you want from a Japanese green tea; it's dark, complex, has a hint of seaweed, but somehow manages to be light and airy at the same time. As the other reviewer mentioned, the aroma is fresh cut grass mixed with a hin...Read Full Review

I'm no expert on Gyokuro, but I will say that, at least to my tastes, this was a top-notch example of one.Read Full Review
I sampled this at World Tea East, but I found I liked it better when I brewed it myself. Harney recommends 155F and 3 minutes. For one teaspoon, I found I liked the results better with a little hotter water (...

I was eager to try this one to see what a better Chinese attempt at gyokuro could produce, and I must say, this tea impressed me a fair amount, and was definitely worth trying.Read Full Review
Dry leaf has a pleasing aroma of a typical, good Japanese green tea. Bold green color.
I brewed this with a lower temperature, 160, typi...

The aroma of Gyokuro tea is very similar to fresh cut grass, rich and lively with distinctive notes of seaweed. I was very curious how the tea profile will hold up after steeping.Read Full Review
The taste is refreshing with reminiscent of seaweed and much sweeter aftertaste than regular Sencha. This tea is great for multiple infusio...
