Was really feeling like a green tonight and still had a sample pack of this in the drawer. Gyokuro Kin for me tonight!
The dry leaves are a very dark green color. They smell fresh and grassy. Reminded me a freshly mowed lawn.
Steeped this for 90 seconds at 160 degrees.
The wet leaves expanded quickly and smell really sweet. The grassy smell of this is amazing. The liquor is a murky radioactive green. Looks delicious.
This tastes very buttery and smooth. It is a bit astringent but the sweetness balances it out. Very nice mouth feel. A very savory tea. Spinach and seaweed. Just what the doctor ordered.
