drank Gyokuro by Adagio Teas
197 tasting notes

All you wonderful Gyokuro fans who so kindly wrote about brewing this stuff. I tried, I really tried, I brewed it every which way and I still don’t like it. I am a big hater of fish and seaweedy stuff and there is just enough that I must sadly decline. It is an attractive tea and I leave it to you all with my best.

I wonder if it is possibly Adagio’s version of Gyokuro. In truth, I am not a fan of most Adagio teas and I’ve found some that are radically different when bought from other vendors. It is astonishing how different teas can be from different vendors.

The Gyokuro Suimei I bought from Den’s Tea doesn’t have a seaweed or fishy smell. (If it did I couldn’t drink it either as I dislike that also.) The dry leaves smell like fresh cut grass, the brewed tea smells lightly vegetal and the taste is vegetal as well and very fresh. There is nothing of fish or seaweed there.
