drank Gyokuro Matcha by Teavana
2160 tasting notes

Here we go with the last of the Teavana gift set…

I brought this to work with me today and managed not to spill it – yay! It’s very smooth, green and slightly sweet. Definitely a bit spinach-y, but I like that. I want to drink more of my Japanese greens so I can justify buying something from Mellow Monk when their new teas come out. See how crazy I am… always thinking ahead to the next purchase. :-D

Preparation
165 °F / 73 °C 2 min, 0 sec

I need this tea set in my life. I’m such a green tea nerd.

Also, I’m confused by the picture… is this a loose leaf tea or a powder (matcha) ? The picture makes it look like its just a leaf, so, Gyokuro leaf with matcha mixed in? I know they make they ceremonial matcha with Gyokuro so it could be anything haha.

I wish they sold that separately from this gift set!

I’m always thinking ahead too Amy. :)) Noordelijk, I got a Teavana sample of this from Amy I wish they sold seperately:

Profile

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

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

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
