drank Gyokuro by Adagio Teas
564 tasting notes

I’m honestly not sure what to think of this one. It’s not exceptional to me, just fine. It’d probably be good with food.

It’s definitely green, and it tastes very vegetal. It’s not all that bitter and not all that sweet: more mellow and in-between. The aftertaste doesn’t quite make it to sweet. Other than that it’s not impressive. The reviews on Adagio’s site claim that other companies have better gyokuros, so I might want to try those.

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
