From Tealux

Gyokuro Premier (Jade Dew) is the finest grade of Japanese green tea. During the single annual spring harvest process, leaves are shaded to increase the natural levels of chlorophyll in the tea. The high level of chlorophyll adds to the flavor and color, and also substantially increases the natural nutritional content as well. The special care in harvesting includes removing only the three youngest leaves. Gyokuro is a rare harvest in Japan, and is cherished by tea connoisseurs all over the world.

Dry product smells quite good. After steeping it has an aroma and taste slightly similar to spinach, but in a good way. Kind of creamyish tasting, for tea anyways. Tastes better after each infusion as it seems to get sweeter and tastes less vegetal. Steeped 3 times. Also, found it quite helpful in getting rid of a sore throat due to having a cold.

Another pot of gyokuro following lunch, this one Tealux Gyokuro Premier. This is not exactly a steep-off with the Teavana Gyokuro Imperial, but I am consuming this pot within the hour. Of course, I drank the Teavana on an empty stomach, and now I’ve eaten, so that may be a relevant factor. Is it affecting my evaluation?

The liquor is viridescent and slightly cloudy, and the brew is just a tad astringent. It’s not quite as smooth and buttery as the Teavana, so I stick with my original evaluation a notch or two below Gyokuro Imperial.

This is a good gyokuro, no question there!


second infusion: I tried this round with cooler water (70C) and it was still a tad astringent, but very enjoyable. Astringency is obviously part of this tea’s personality!
