drank Gyokuro Yamashiro by DAVIDsTEA
6 tasting notes

Gyokuro,

I stopped by David’s Tea today to grab a cup of straight green tea for the ride home under this terrible weather. I wanted to have a little taste of Gyokuro Yamashiro tea. A little bird told me to get a cup of it instead of buying a baggie because of its price, so I did.

Two things I should’ve done differently
1. – I ordered it with a splash of soy milk and agave out of reflex
2. – I steeped it for 5 minutes

I wanted to taste how it truly is… BARE NAKED STRAIGHT but I only realized it a little too late. I didn’t want to make a fuss so, I left it as that and went my way. I’ve also forgotten the amount of leaves David’s Tea pour for just a cuppa. It was too much! I think I’ve over-steeped the drink, giving it a slight bitter after taste, however, the tea was satisfyingly enough. I really love the vegetal tones.

Bio

I may be a fairy, or a pink unicorn or whatever you want me to be.

I am open minded at most parts but not enough to explore the veggies (laughs). I am a carnivore that loves fruits and drinks tea. I was introduced very early to the world of tea but never fully got interested until the beginning of 2013. I frequent David’s Tea – it’s the most accessible. I drink my tea whilst browsing through the world of fashion, arts and illustration; playing video games (PS3 & PC); reading books and mangas; watching Disney and Miyazaki films, and anime; gushing over how awesome the Green brothers are — all of which I regularly do on the daily meaning every hour is tea time!

Born in the Philippines, grew up in America, and recently moved to Canada, I have yet to explore more of the world.
