drank Gyokuro Yamashiro by DAVIDsTEA
145 tasting notes

Mmmm. One of my first straight green teas. Wonderfully devoid of bitterness and as others have said, very buttery. I always kind of wondered what people meant when they said a tea was buttery, and now I know. I got this as a sample and I can’t wait to buy more next time I’m at David’s (I wish it wasn’t so expensive though!)

Preparation

I’ve been meaning to try this. I’ve loved my experience with Japanese teas so far so gyokuro is the next logical step, once I get the money of course. :)

University student and relatively new tea convert. It all started several months ago when my mom bought me a tin of The Glow from David’s. Now I want to try ALL THE TEAS.

If you know of any excellent tea places around downtown Toronto, let me know! I’ve found a few but am always looking for more.
