Ippodo was my favorite although I am no expert and have not sampled as much gyo as I have sencha. Upper Middle grade is probably the best bang for your buck, ie Premium Grade as opposed to Extra Super Ultra-Premium Superior Grade.

Back in school now working just part-time, so Gyokuro, Shincha, and the high-end Matcha will be a rarity.

Can't really justify spending student loans on the pricey stuff, although it's funny, even $25/oz loose leaf is still what, couple bucks a session, about the price of what most people pay for their Starbucks...

I've had gyo from O-cha and it's one of my favorite teas of all time to be honest. I find the flavor to be sweeter than sencha and less astringent. It's such a good purchase imo.
