From Drink The Leaf

We are excited about this new selection. Gyokuro means “Jewel Dew”. The dried leaf is almost aqua-green in color, extremely bright and inviting. After infusion, the liqueur reveals a bright Chartreuse color. The aroma is intriguing; with a hint of citrus and fresh cut grass, and a mild flowery note. On the palate it’s smooth with a natural sweetness. Flavors of toasted hazelnut or Nori seaweed comes to mind. Try this tea, and treat yourself to a jewel.

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this fabulous tea to try.

I love Gyokuro! I love the beautiful, vivid green leaves. I love the fresh, vegetative aroma, I love the flavor that is slightly nutty and sweet and vegetative. I love that it only takes 45 seconds to infuse the leaves. I love Gyokuro!

This is an excellent Gyokuro. The flavor is smooth and delicious. Delightful. YUM.

Smells toasty and vegetal.
I can taste the hazelnut comparison and it is very earthy tasting as well.
This is pretty good.

I just received a huge, generous batch of samples from LiberTEAS (thanks again!!) and this one jumped right out as being special. I’ve never seen a tea so green and uniform. I imagined the harvester using tiny nail clippers to individually collect just the smallest tip of each leaf.

The fragrance is clean, slightly grassy and briny. I even picked up subtle notes of sesame. Once prepared, the sesame rises to the top and this acquires a toasted oat background.

The tea brews to be relatively pale but has a substantial heartiness. It’s slightly vegetative with a bit of kelp and finishes with a mildly sweet toasted sesame. The cooling cup works towards a honey finish.

What was really unexpected was the overall body of the tea. For a green tea, it has a very rich, almost buttery mouth feel. In just a few cups, this has moved into the top tier of my green tea list.
