I was out in Dublin today and wanted to try some tea brewed by a “professional,” so I stopped into Tehku Tea Company to try my first gyokuro, which I had heard was good for people who like milk oolong because of its buttery flavor.
I have to say I wasn’t impressed with the smell of the leaves. I have to remember now that smell doesn’t necessarily reflect the flavor. Because…wow. Just wow. It tastes exactly like this havarti cheese I have at home. It’s strong, buttery, earthy, beany, mushroomy, and at times a little tiny bit of bitterness. Why is this so amazing?
Flavors: Beany, Butter, Earth, Mushrooms
