yummo…did you ever do an ice one of these. Put a little on an ice cube and let it melt (or is it with the ice on it), makes the concentrated flavor…ninja tea…It’s on youtube.

Easily the best Gyokuro I’ve ever tasted. Sweet and smooth and it has a thickness to it that is broth-y… however, like the literature provided with the ITFA Global Tea Taster’s Club package states, I would describe that thickness as syrupy more than broth-y, as broth-y suggests to me a more savory kind of taste, while syrupy suggests a sweeter flavor. And this is much more sweet than savory (although there is a savory side to it too).

Very, very good.

TeaEqualsBliss’s description of it tasting a lot of buttered lima beans is dead on. It has a short finish but while sipping is very round in the mouth, almost but not quite coating.
