drank Gyokuro Green Tea by Jing Tea
54 tasting notes

…After reading in several books through how much effort Japanese tea growers go with this particular kind of tea…well, I was a bit disappointet I must say.
The leafs look very inviting…dark green and juicy.But after brewing there is not much magic going on. The strong awakening effect that one is used to from drinking Sencha is not happening at all.Also that fruity flavor notes from Japanese green teas is missing here.
Although I was quite generous with the portioning of leafs for each brew…I only got a very shy glimps of spicyness out at the end.
