drank Gyokuro Suimei by Den's Tea
525 tasting notes

So last night, I had this tea and loved it. The caffeine made my sleep uneasy, but who cares. This tea is awesome! I had a second steep before bed and I think I liked it even more than the first. But I could tell from the strength of flavor that these leaves could probably give up a third steep. Being too tired and full of liquids to make a third steep, I put the leaves in my large mug, poured water over it, and stuck it in the fridge.

I come home from work today and pull this tea out of the fridge and take a sip. I was nearly overcome with bliss. Best tea ever. So sweet and smooth and perfect! I never want to drink anything else ever again. But I have no more of this tea. I will die of dehydration! Okay, not really. But I really am afraid to drink something else now because it just can’t stand up to how awesome this tea is. You know how in class, someone gives this awesome presentation that the whole class LOVES and you’re up next. That’s how it is with this tea. Other teas can’t help but feel inferior.

I think I’m going to have to give this tea a 100. My first ever. Congratulations, Gyokuro Suimei. I’ve long considered oolongs my favorite, but somehow you still win. Don’t get all cocky and sloppy now…


I love gyokuru too. :)

I came from a tea drinking family, but I never appreciated the different qualities and varieties of tea until older. All that time wasted! But I guess I needed to be mature enough to appreciate the tea experience. :)

My favorite teas are green oolongs and white tea. I also love greens, especially gyokuro. I have a huge appreciation for rooibos and honeybush as they are often that only thing I can drink in the evening. I am a relatively new convert to black teas. This is unfortunate for my wallet but extremely wonderful for my palate. :)

In any case, I have a love for both flavored and unflavored teas. They are different experiences for sure, but both enjoyable. I find that it often depends on my mood.

I am on a quest to find a tea that will win my husband over. I think I’m making some headway…
