Another contender for my morning cup(s) of gyokuro. Much better than the Hibiki-an organic but still missing that bright green flavor of, yes, Teavana’s (conventional).
More bland than bitter, the flavor nevertheless is more like kale or another bitter green. Too bad too as TG’s service is wonderful and I’ve got so many fond memories of their shop in Heidelberg. I was sort of hoping this would be “the one”.
