I received this sample a while ago (about a year ago?) … had it stashed away and forgotten until going through my stash last night.

This is a pretty decent Gyokuro – certainly impressive for a bagged tea. Light and clean, very fresh tasting – especially noteworthy since I’ve held on to this for a year.

I can believe that a gyokuro would ever be put in a bag…I’m sure some poor tea farmer must had commited seppuku…..

It probably shouldn’t have been… that being said, it was still very good.

well maybe the poor Japanese farmer had somebody to second him then :)

I have been feeling guilty for not tasting tea samplers right away. I can’t seem to keep up since I tend to run back to my usual brew after a few new ones. Nice one year held. I am a beginner, no way near having something for a year as yet.

My day has been given to Oolonging the brew.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

http://52teas.com

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
