(4.91 stars | 11 reviews)
$89.00

Mikado means emperor, which is emblematic of this incredibly smooth Hon Gyokuro shade-grown green tea. In fact, these tea leaves are from Uji, Kyoto, a prefecture that boasts producing some of the most high quality, distinct Gyokuro with a unique flavor that differs from your standard shade-grown green tea. Mikado Gyokuro green tea is genuinely sweet with a savory, umami taste that carries notes of seaweed.

    This gyokuro is mild and sweet. No astringency. Best gyokuro I ever had

    This is a fantastic green tea. It has a nice bit of sweetness to it, with a lots of umami that is typical of high quality gyokuro. I steep mine in a small pre-warmed tetsubin (Japanese iron teapot) with water that is 170 degrees. I let it steep for 2:15-2:30 minutes because I like my tea a tad on the bitter side. This has now become part of my morning ritual, and it’s a great way to start the day. Only problem is that its a bit on the pricey side.

    I love to enjoy this gyokuro tea cold brewed or hot. So good either way.

    This gyokuro is beautiful jade color when brewed. I like my gyokuro full flavor so I steep for a longer time. If you like green tea but haven’t had Gyokuro I wouldn’t even say you’ve had green tea yet – it’s a full experience with this tea. So beautiful. 5 stars

    This is an excellent Gyokuro! I brew it very gently at 165F for just three min. Can be rebrewed at least 3 times.

    I pay the extra for this gyokuro for the fresh vegetal taste and the health benefits. Excellent Quality.

    This gyokuro is a winner! It has all the lush, green and freshly-picked flavors that “Gyokuro” is known for. I brewed at 60C for a bit over a minute and got a nice mouth-feel and more of the umami aftertaste that I love.

    I’ve purchased many gyokuro from several companies including the ones directly from Japan. Senbird is fresh and aromatic. It’s a high price but well worth it.

    Excellent gyokuro tea, fresh product, quick delivery.

    The Gyokuro is amazing. The tea leaves are vibrant and fresh and green and unlike any green tea I’ve ever drank. Its packed with umami. It’s smooth without the bitterness or astringency I’ve experienced with green tea. It’s calms at first sip and luxurious treat until the very last.
