drank Gyokuro Yamashiro by DAVIDsTEA
13 tasting notes

This is my first sip of a gyokuro. As someone who leans toward straight green teas, I really like it. This steeps to a beautiful bright yellow-green color. It tastes fresh and vegetally-green and can be enjoyed without any sweetener (I added just a few drops of pure lemon juice, as I customarily do). I will enjoy this a few times a week and will definitely use my frequent steeper points toward this more pricey (but worth it) tea in the future.

Flavors: Butter, Grass, Smooth, Vegetal

I’ve recently made the turn from being more of a coffee bean gal to a green tea maven. I’m partial to straight teas. And I’ve just begun to explore oolongs. I do enjoy a fruity-floral-sweet herbal cup now and then as well. I’m by no means an experienced tea taster, but I’m learning (and enjoying every sip)!
