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, there's no comparison. The taste is full and light and delicate, a sensory experience that merits savoring; if you have yet to experience it, I think you've missed out.
