From Yunomius

Unique and rare tea called gyokucha (round tea) is a by-product collected in the sencha processing. Drink it as tea or can eat it as a snack!

…………………………………………….

A very interesting green tea. It looks like Chinese gunpowder tea in that the leaves are rolled up into little balls. This particular one from our supplier Chakoan has a strong savory umami aroma that is similar to gyokuro.

Almost caught up on backlogged notes! This is one of many teas I recently received from Hoalatha and I tried it a couple of weeks ago.

The dark green, dry leaves had a salty, minerally, umami aroma and have been rolled in a unique way, like a cross between a gunpowder green and a twisted sencha.

The first steep produced a very light, yellow liquor and released a very deep aroma from the leaves. The taste is light and refreshing, and has a sweet finish.

As is customary, the second steep is a quicker one. The produced liquor is more yellow and the leaves begin to quickly unfurl. The flavor is a familiar blend of umami, beaniness and sweet chestnut, with mineral notes on the exhale. I really enjoyed this sample and would definitely try more teas processed this way in the future. Thanks tea friend!
