drank Guricha by Den's Tea
2587 tasting notes

I’ve never had a guricha before so here goes nothing. ooooh. It looks like I ended up liking this a bit more than the other testers. :)

Steeped mine at around 180 F for 90 seconds. I got a nice greenish-yellow cup. The wet leaves are very green and smell so vegetal. I did notice if you steep this for a while it can get kind of pungent so I think shorter steeps of 30 – 60 seconds work well here.

This reminds me of sencha’s grandpa, hee hee. It’s more robust and full, with lots of green spinach-y flavors. I think it’s even a bit buttery, brothy, and thick like drinking green tea soup. This would certainly not appeal to everyone’s palette but to me it seems very nourishing, fortifying.

Overall I’m loving my Den’s tea experience….

I will try mine today – assuming there is one in my Den’s tea sample pack as well.

I don’t believe it was in the sample pack, I placed an order with them…

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it
