Okay – so after receiving my KaiMatcha and tasting that amazing flavour – I was craving more of it!
Just one sniff of the dry leaf of this great quality Gyokuro was enough to know that this would cure my umami craving.

I made a huge 40oz pot of it (huge because I was all by myself lol) and starting drinking it like it was going out of style. Oh my – so savoury. It tasted like fresh green grass, but it wasn’t at all bitter. There was a slight astringency at the end of the sip – but oh so slight (I brewed at 175 for 2 mins!)

The scent was so fresh and summery – this is a very special tea. I can’t wait to try the method of brewing with just the tea leaves and icecubes. That concentrated flavour is exactly what I’m craving!

the ice method is one I have yet to try…must say it does intrigue me but for some reason, I never bring myself to do it!

BIG Thank you to Pekko tea for this very generous sample. The dry leaf smells beautiful, very rich. When I added water to the leaves it was such a lovely thing to watch. The tiny leaves are a very deep green and as they settled the water appeared to be a light mint green. It’s steeping now and turning a mild golden colour. The tiny leaves expanded quite a bit.
Cleary this is a delicate tea. Steeped 2 minutes at 80 degrees it has come out slightly bitter. But the vegetal taste is still very rich. Very nice tea!
