How does this gyokuro compare to other top Gyokuros like Kettl's Mare Gyokuro?

Hi, I haven’t tried Kettl’s gyokuro so can’t comment. What can you share about this group, haven’t heard of them before? Ippodo’s special select is the best I’ve had 2 years in a row. Umami rich, elegant, crazy smooth, brothy...oh wow.

Kettl does a good job sourcing very high end Japanese teas. I've met many of the farmers that they work with and they all speak quite highly of the founder.

At Leafy Green, we've used several of their teas as "benchmarks" when deciding what tea we want to carry.
