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 hint of seaweed. Once infused, the tea becomes a very light green and is somewhat cloudy. Usually i can steep the same leaves all day (4-5 pots) and it holds its flavor. This is one of the pricier teas at Teavana, but it's in a class of its own.
