Ippodo Mail (No. 53): Try Gyokuro
If you've been looking for a Japanese green tea with less astringency than sencha, we recommend you try gyokuro, which has a sweet taste and fuller umami flavor. Grown using a special method known as shade cultivation that blocks out direct sunlight so as to reduce astringency, gyokuro is a highly prized, precious tea that is only produced in very small amounts.

Brew 90 seconds with water at 60℃ for a sweeter taste, or brew for 30 seconds using boiling water for a lighter taste. Enjoy Tekiro gyokuro's refreshing fragrance in the same way you would a fine herbal tea.
