This was another sample sent from Yunomi. This is definitely one I will be purchasing again. A very sweet gyokuro with a blast of umami to start you off.
I steeped this with 5g of tea and started off at 140 degrees for about 60 seconds. The first cup was a blast of umami with a wonderful sweetness. The cup had a very full flavor and had deep grass undertones overshadowed only by the immense savoriness.
The second and additional cups were steeped at 160 degrees for 10, 30, and 60 seconds respectively. The next cups were sweet, light, with a slight taste of honey. There was also a hint of flavor that reminded me of a Chinese green tea for some reason. There was also a very enjoyable sweet finish at the end of each cup.
Flavors: Sweet, Umami
