drank Gyokuro by Adagio Teas
523 tasting notes

I’m honestly not sure what to think of this one. It’s not exceptional to me, just fine. It’d probably be good with food.

It’s definitely green, and it tastes very vegetal. It’s not all that bitter and not all that sweet: more mellow and in-between. The aftertaste doesn’t quite make it to sweet. Other than that it’s not impressive. The reviews on Adagio’s site claim that other companies have better gyokuros, so I might want to try those.

Elizabeth, college student, history/anthropology major. I love to read, travel, and try new foods.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it about a year ago. I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything! My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, and fruit flavors. My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.

About Swaps: I am always willing to swap with anyone within continental North America! Just drop me a note. For anyone in the eastern half of the U.S. I’ll gladly swap small samples of things, but further away than that I would prefer if we dealt with larger amounts.
