Aroma: Subtle but complex. Reminiscent of buttered croissants, subdued grassy notes, hints of sweetcorn. Similar to a Gyokuro.

Pallate: Delicious! Mellow butteryness, lots of savory ‘umami’, slight grassiness but with litte to no astringency. Light apricot/stone fruit and dried flowers. Full, creamy mouth feel. All in all similar to a Gyokuro but with a bit more butteryness and a little less astringency. Flavour is still there on the second steeping but lacks some complexity.

Colour: Golden with a green tinge.

Overall: Both fresh and comforting. A very worthy (cheaper) alternative to T2’s Gyokuro and definitely my preference of the two when price is considered. And the ‘organic’ status is a big plus for me.

Price: AUD$28/100g

Tea Glorious Tea!

Since a trip to Japan as a young lad I have had a growing obsession with tea. Oolongs are my all time favorite but I love almost all green and white teas and love trying anything new.

I’m just starting out on Steepster but am looking forward to uploading a whole bunch of teas in the future!

I’m always keen to review sample teas so please PM me if you would like some reviews done!
