This came as a sample with the matcha I ordered from ZenTea. I understand there is more than one company by this name. To clarify, this is the company in Canada whose site is ZenTeaLife.

I am having some of the Asian buffet leftovers for lunch and wanted a good green to go with it. I am delighted that I spotted this in my free sample and swaps box. I will get to do a sample SIPDOWN, which isn’t as exciting as for some of you because I don’t put samples in my cupboard, but is still exciting because I have reduced the embarrassing large amount of tea I own by one so I feel a little better about myself. Ha!

The color reminds me of the organic unfiltered olive oil I buy. The leaves in the sample pack are a good size but lots of teeny tiny bits escaped into my cup. It didn’t matter – it didn’t make it bitter. I have made two steeps so far and the second is as good as the first and just as flavorful.

My main thought as I drink this is that if I were chewing, I would know for certain that I was eating creamed spinach. I really like creamed spinach, by the way. So I thoroughly enjoyed both cups of tea and am glad to try my second gyokuro ever. Now I know what to buy for that rich, creamy spinach taste.

Thank you, ZenTeaLife for the sample!


Mmmm gyokuro! Nice sample to get :)


Hmmm, have been eying gyokuro for some time now, but don’t think I’ll be trying it anytime soon if it tastes like creamed spinach I like creamed spinach, but with dinner (some potato’s and a piece of meat), not in my tea…. I think …


Do you like other japanese greens like sencha Barbara? If you like sencha you might enjoy it :)


I agree, if you like Sencha, you would love gyokuro!


Yes I do like Sencha, at least in the summers… Thanks for your comments. I’ll be trying gyokuro some time after all. :-)
