Alas, another love lost from the David’s Tea collection. This tea was sadly discontinued, and while it not be the most amazing green tea the world has ever seen, I loved it because it made me love green teas. It brews a beautiful light yellow liquor. The flavour is reminiscent of a more steamed vegetable taste, kind of asparagus I would say. I really like having this one with a good arugula based omelette.

If you are looking for something similar, their Gyokuro Yamashiro has strong notes of butter and asparagus :)

I agree! The Yamashiro is really close, but the buttery ness kinda tosses me off. Le Sigh… gonna have to find a new source for this because I don’t believe I can go on without it.

Bio

Used to be a big coffee drinker, but over time I realized coffee all kinda tastes the same to me so I switched teams.

I am a bit of a foodie. I love to cook at home and try new things. I especially love to find ways to incorporate tea into my cooking. I am a huge book nerd (it’s the only thing I have more of in my house than tea), and I also collect and read comics. I’m a really big scifi/fantasy/horror fan across the entertainment board (books, TV, movies, games, etc). My dream is to have my own tea and book store where I can hang around with other people who really just want to talk about tea and books, and maybe show me pictures of their cats. I also plan on one day owning a very fat french bulldog.

In the tea world: Greens, whites and rooibos are my current favorites. I can always enjoy a good herbal or oolong though. Blacks are kinda bleh to me, but a good yunnan or blend of one could get me interested. I am way more into straight teas then I am blended, though I own more blends than straight teas (go figure).

Currently employed by David’s Tea, so I personally think for a tea junkie I have a pretty ideal job. I’m always down for steeping something new. Suggestions and trade are more than welcome!
