drank Gyokuro Asahi by CoffeeAM
280 tasting notes

Geoff sent me a large amount of this back in March (something like 3-4oz!).
Thanks!

While I wouldn’t have even thought to look at a company called “CoffeeAM” for green tea, much less hand-picked Gyokuro, this stuff is pretty good!

The wet leaf has a very nice aroma, and when brewed cold reminded me a little of a green, fruit-like Tie Gwan Yin. Of course the typical strong sweetness, followed by a little umami is present, but it isn’t really vegetal or bitter at all. Intense, sweet, and hints of fruit are what this gives.

Not one I would have sought out, but I’m glad to have it. I have yet to try their recommendation of just 100 degrees for 3 minutes, but I will have to test it out.

Oops, I should’ve labeled it. The company that puts this out is actually called “Teaflection”. http://steepster.com/teas/teaflection/15816-gyokuro-asahi-rare-green-tea

Oh ok, cool… I’ll copy my tasting note here at that one.
Thanks again!
