Mellow and sweet. It has a light, crisp flavor that seems to clean the palate. A little bit of savory ‘saltiness’ to this cup too.
A very impressive tea from Chado Tea House. Here’s my full-length review: http://sororiteasisters.com/2013/06/11/guricha-ureshino-green-tea-from-chado-tea-house/
An amazing green tea … sweet, vegetative, remarkably smooth … smoother than many other Japanese Sencha teas I’ve experienced. It’s sweeter than other sencha teas too, with less of that bitter intonation. A delightful creaminess to the cup as well. One of the nicest Japanese Sencha teas that I’ve had the opportunity to try.

A really delicious flavored Kukicha. The Yuzu really brightens the flavor, a pleasant citrus flavor that is somewhere between tangerine and grapefruit. Definitely a memorable tea.

I’m on my 2nd infusion of this and I like the 2nd infusion better than the first. I am using short infusion times for this sencha – less than a minute. It’s GOOD. It’s a strong green – spinach and broccoli combo – flavor comparison. It’s sturdy and impressive! A really nice sencha!!!!
I tried one of these earlier today. At first, I was going to prepare it as I would Matcha, but, then at some point before the water got hot (I think I was impatient), I decided to add a little cold water to my chawan instead and drank this cold. It’s really good! Sweet and vegetative and tasty.
My full-length review of it will be on SororiTea Sisters in the next day or two. http://sororiteasisters.com
Special thanks to Liberteas for this lil gem! This is amazing!
It’s incredibly clean and quite brothy. It’s smooth, semi-savory, a little sweet and a little vegetal. It’s not grassy or bitter. I totally agree with Liberteas that this is JUST RIGHT in every way! Wonderful!
I am revisiting this tea this evening because a) It was so lovely yesterday and I wanted to experience that again today and b) the package containing what I had left of this tea was just sitting there, on the counter, as if to say “Hey! Drink me! Drink me!” Since I’m medicated and in pain and not wanting to stand around on my ankle, I decided to go with this tea mostly because it was conveniently there, waiting for me.
I am sad that this is the last that I have of this tea though, it is an excellent Gyokuro. Chado Tea House has a wonderful selection of Japanese Green teas, everyone! You should definitely give them a try if you’re in the market for good Japanese teas. OH… and they’re very nice too!
This is nice … very relaxing and it allows me to mentally leave the pain behind as I enjoy the tea. I like that. I need that.
Thanks to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me a sampling of this amazing tea from Chado Tea House. I love Gyokuro… and this one is remarkably good.
I am backlogging this because on Wednesday afternoon (technically yesterday, as it is now early in the AM on Thursday) I rolled my ankle and was taken to the ER to make sure I didn’t break it. Fortunately I did not, but it is still very painful. This is the tea that I drank while sitting in front of the TV trying to forget my pain with the help of painkillers. Why is it that doctors are so afraid to give pain killers when we are in pain? Yeah yeah, addiction, blah blah blah. But, when I’m in pain, I’m really not concerned with becoming addicted to something that will help me not hurt. At this point, I’d rather not hurt and run the risk of an addiction than to keep the pain at a “tolerable” level and not become addicted.
end of rant
Anyway… this was really nice. Crisp, vegetative, and soothing … and for a moment while observing the beauty of the tea I was able to forget about the pain. Just a moment, but it was a lovely moment.
When I opened the package – it smelled so fresh! Like freshly cut grass kind of fresh. Very vegetative, very sweet, very clean and crisp and … fresh.
The brewed tea has a lighter scent, still very vegetal and fresh smelling, but, not quite as prominent an aroma.
The flavor of this reminds me very much of a high quality sencha, but it is less “brothy.” It still has a very pleasing mouthfeel and a thickness to it, but it is not as thick or soup-like the way I typically notice from a top-notch Japanese Sencha. The flavor is vegetal, but not quite as much as I expected based on the fragrance of the dry leaf (I expected this to be highly vegetative, but, this is a light vegetative taste with lovely flowery notes)
This is really lovely!
Liberteas & DaisyChubb…comin’ at cha! AND…saving some for myself!!! This is FAB!!!
A most lovely addiction. Only issue with this tea is – I hope I get my stock replenished when it runs out ! :-) very flavourful, sweet and I love its golden yellow liquor !
This is the Bai Mu Dan that I sourced from Chado Tea house – hear in Mumbai. The tea leaf is similar to the Bai Mu Dan my wife bought from Shanghai ( they look slightly more white) – and the taste is almost as good too :-) subtle, sweet.
I was a bit vary about trying a Pu-erh tea – thinking maybe it might be too strong for me. But I found this to be quite pleasant and flavourful with the added advantage of knowing that this one is packed with health benefits ! :-)
Can one of the most rare white teas be your daily morning ritual ? Why not ? :-) The more I have this tea, the more it’s full flavour and sweetness grows on me !
Still loving this rare tea ! Maybe I should not get too used to it :-) As a novice, I am realising the art is in getting the brew to the right temperature to truly enjoy the magnificence of this tea !
When I saw the colour of the tea liquor ( golden yellow vs the usual subdued yellow of most premium white teas), I was not so sure I was going to enjoy this one ! Then I took a full sip – and I tasted flavour, character and its sweetness ! I couldn’t relate to its high price till this sip and many more sips followed – followed by a purchase ! I am in love :-)
Special Thanks to LiberTEAs for this one!
It smells like Spinach and Pine Nuts! Very nice on the nose! The flavor is full and green and slightly buttery!
My 2nd infusion was a bit bitter but not overly so. The first infusion was NOT bitter in the slightest! :)
This is an exquisite Sencha, a lot of beautiful flavor to it. It has a light brothy-esque quality to it, not as heavy as some of the brothy teas I’ve tried, but, it has a savory tone to it that lends a brothy-like quality to it. A strong vegetative scent leads to a strong vegetative taste, but, I think that the sweetness of the tea balances out the grassy tones very nicely, making it neither too sweet nor too savory… it is just right.
The dry loose leaf aroma is AMAZING! It’s tremendously savory…vegetal, I want to eat it.
The flavor is beautifully-done! I’m in LOVE.
The taste is milder than the aroma but equally as intriguing. It’s sweet slightly vegetal. Reminds me of steamed green veggies…not quite broccoli…but not quite peas or beans either…somewhere in the middle of all 3.
This is remarkable! Very memorable! I LOVE IT!
A strong green tea! A nice Grassy-green with a bit of sweeter-grass towards the end of the sip! Smells like grass & Veggies! Tastes more grassier than vegetal tho. It finishes smoother than I thought and I like that! Everything from dry loose leaf to post infusion color to aroma and taste SCREAM vibrant and brilliantly intense GREEN! Wonderful!
I decided to brew up another pot of this tea so that I can review it.
What a wonderful Sencha it is. It is noted as an “everyday” Sencha, and I can say that I’d be happy to drink this every day. It has such a wonderful flavor. Buttery sweet. No bitterness. Lovely.
This is fantastic. Sweet and crisp and light … while at the same time being so wonderfully rich in flavor. It tastes so incredible. The vegetative taste is buttery and not grassy, and there is very little astringency here. Just so delightful.
This tea has a STRONG aroma. I think it smells of dried smoked meat, like a beef-jerky (I mean this in a good way). The tea itself doesn’t taste anything like its aroma, in fact, it tastes like a nice roasted sencha. One waft of this tea before actually tasting it totally changes the experience of a regular sencha. I thought it was great and I would surely drink it again.
