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!

The flavor is complex, balanced, and delicious. It naturally tastes a bit sweet so that adding any sweetener would be excessive and, I think, would constitute a loss to its subtle flavor. If green tea was a fruit, I would call this flavor wonderfully fruity. No bitterness if made at 175 °F and steeped for 2 minutes.

Bottom line: a great tea, and a new favorite for me.
