13 Tasting Notes
Opened new bag and had beautiful experience. I was so disappointed with a previous brand, so this was very pleasant. I used my cute Yixing frog on lotus pot and brewed gong fu style. Leaves unfurled beautifully. Lovely sweet finish. I did four steeps but could probably done more.
Flavors: Anise, Flan
This is my first purchase of gyokuro, but it is lovely. No bitterness. Grassy, but fresh. My first brewing session was not very successful. For tonight’s brewing I cooled the water wayyyyy down and used a little less tea leaves (4 grams) for about 120 ml of water. I also let the first steeping go longer. Great tea for a Spring evening.
