Rich, almost full-bodied, smooth taste with sweet ending and complex notes
Gyokuro bushes are covered in shade two weeks before harvesting, which creates a light but very complex blend and a luscious deep dark green color. The shading helps the leaves to retain chlorophyll, which concentrates both the green tea taste and nutrients, making this a bright and flavorful favorite.

A very fine tea

By Alaskadavey

from Sitka, Alaska

Comments about Teavana Gyokuro Imperial Green Tea:

I love this tea. It recalibrates me to a mindful place; its aroma and taste are second to none and its delicate hue, especially when backlighted in the waxing dawn, serves to greatly enhance the morning ritual....... definitely drink it from a clear glass. One tsp in 16 oz water at 170 degrees F, for 1 minute seems the ideal formula. And, I can repeat with the original tsp 2 or 3 times. Gyokuro Imperial is a perfect green tea for a perfect tea-drinking experience!

Love this green tea

By SME

from Republic, MO

Comments about Teavana Gyokuro Imperial Green Tea:

Very important to follow steep time and temperature. I heat my water to 175-180 and steep for one minute. I usually drink it hot with some honey but I also love it on ice. I sometimes pair it with jasmine silver needle or precious white peach. Yum!

A Very Grassy Green

By Tea For Me, None For You

from Manteca, CA

See all my reviews

Comments about Teavana Gyokuro Imperial Green Tea:

This particular green is very grassy and I find that element quite overwhelming. It seems to overshadow any other notes in flavor and take over the tea in a negative way.

While I wouldn't mind purchasing a cup of this at a restaurant or teashop on a single occasion, it is most assuredly not one I want in mass quantities.

Brewed at 175F for 2-3 minutes.

Brewed this tea 150 degrees

By eL-eL

from Austin, TX

Comments about Teavana Gyokuro Imperial Green Tea:

This tea is my second best Gyokuro tea. Gyokuro Superior Hibiki-An Japanese green tea is my favorite. It took me awhile to get the right temperature. I brew this this tea in 150 to 155 degrees for 45- 50 secs to get a very smooth and gentle flavor. I find this tea bitter when I brew it higher than 160 degrees.

Very disappointing

By Chris

from Portland Oregon

Comments about Teavana Gyokuro Imperial Green Tea:

if you are a true Gyokuro tea drinker, you will be very disappointed. This was not my first bad experience with Teavana. There had been 2 purchased for this very special tea in the past. And the 3rd purchased was on this Mother's Day week. I bought 2oz of loose tea leaves.
I had one experience that they burned the tea because of very hot water. For Gyokuro, this tea will be a total spoil if use a wrong temperature of hot water. All these experiences were all happened in one location at Washington Square Mall Oregon. I will not try again.

Delicious if your follow directions!

By Carriekins

from Orange County, CA

Comments about Teavana Gyokuro Imperial Green Tea:

This tea is, by far, the best green tea I have ever tasted. The first time I made it, I brewed it at a temperature that was too high, which apparently burned the leaves, and for too long. It tasted like spinach! gross! I tried again the next day and followed the directions and it was PERFECT! The next day, I added a jasmine dragon pearl and some honey and I am totally addicted to the stuff now. I just can't get enough!

Comments about Teavana Gyokuro Imperial Green Tea:

I use a cold first infusion for that umami flavor. After that I can easily get 5 infusions from this tea with the last steep a lot longer of course.
It is easily a quality meditation tea at a good price.
