From Golden Moon Tea

One of the Finest Representations of this fine tea we have found. This Gyokuro is shade grown Japanese tea, plucked during the first cut during May. An assertive vegetal flavor with hints of toasted walnut, with an incredible mouthful the Japanese refer to as Umami. A Truly unique and magnificent tea.

This is a pretty good gyokuro. It’s one of the more forgiving ones I’ve tried — I oversteeped it this morning and it did not turn bitter at all.

I’ve tried it twice now — once, steeped for only 2.5 min. and once, oversteeped (5 min. or more). It yields a cloudy, greenish-yellow liquor that is nice and brothy, vegetal and with the typical gyokuro umami. It is not terribly sweet, and it’s not as salty or seaweed-ish as some gyokuros I’ve tried. The flavors are strong, though, not weak or watery. It’s a good-tasting green tea, and it’s one I anticipate reaching for often.
