I have never tried Gyokuro before. It was very different from the Sencha. The Gyokuro was more grassy/vegetal and umami tasting with a full buttery flavor feel when drank. Buttery and Umami! To my taste buds that was the combination of the tea. I only gave it 4 stars because this tea was not my personal favorite. I still enjoy the classic taste of Sencha more.
I recieved the tea shortly after my order. Packaged very professionally. And I can say if you take it you will see and feel the tea working its magic like a magic potion, literally.
Not my favorite but still good some others may like
I've been drinking gyokuro about 15 years and I find this one to be of high quality with a nice mellow flavor and gives me a sense of well-being effect:)
Unique flavorful tea as always and the organic selections is the best you can find.
