Ippoen Gyokuro

Type Gyokuro
Name Ippoen
Region/Country Japan
Vendor Ippodo

Very classic gyokuro, which I think opens up best when steeped almost cool at 60 Celsius. Really nice balance of floral, umami, and herbal notes. I also drank it on ice cubes several times over the hot summer of 2020, and its light sweetness was exceptional.

I wrote about Ippoen in this 2019 blog post.
