“Yum. That is all. (Did someone say cheesecake? We’re going to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner. Woo hoo!)” Read full tasting note
“Dry Smell: like a fruit rollup. Wet Smell: Like snow peas. Tastes like snow peas. Maybe grass as well. Not bad I’ve never had Gyokuro before but it’s nice I think I might like Sencha Better though.” Read full tasting note
“I had another pleasure of trying Gyokuro this time around since my last impression was from an “up-selling establishment”. My first impression was almost always the intense vegetal and spinach...” Read full tasting note
“I actually tried to re-steep one and IT WORKED OUT WELL I just let it steep a big longer. I DON’T REALLY KNOW… WHY I DIDN’T TRY IT BEFORE. Wow that was dumb of me. AT LEAST NOW I KNOW!” Read full tasting note

Description

Green tea from Japan famed for its unique shading process. Gyokuro, meaning ‘pearl dew,’ is among the finest of Japanese teas. Our ‘Moonlight Gyokuro’ is made solely from the prized tender buds gathered in the early spring flush. Three weeks prior to plucking, tea bushes are shaded from the sun. The fruits of this hard work are evident in each cup. The result is a gentle tea with an intoxicating fragrance and truly sublime taste.
