Hardy little Gyokuro that brews up rather consistently. Quite grassy with a nice backbone of green melons in the aftertaste. Slightly sweet, but not as perceptible. Little to no astringency detected.

Flavors: Grass, Grass Seed, Green Melons, Sweet, warm grass

Such a smoooooth gyokuro. The umami flavor is just a hint when you swallow and let in more air. It quickly subsides and resolves in a cool, slightly sweet fruit note, mostly melon to my tongue. Did I experiment with this at 190? Yep. Was I rewarded with a new gyok experience? Yep. The leaves even gave a fairly nice second cup.

If it were a bit less expensive, this could be a sensible daily drinker.
