From Yuuki-cha

Uguisu, a very tasty and brilliant quality organic gyokuro from Kagoshima that we are offering here. An original blend that has been put together for us by the grower. Easy to brew at various temperatures and it doesn’t hold back on those fantastic savory gyokuro notes when brewed up. One of the tastiest organic gyokuro that we offer.

I can’t warm up to this particular gyokuro and will probably cold-brew the rest of my pouch. The aromas are weak, the body is lighter than usual, and even though the taste is pungent I find the profile off. I am not quite sure why but it seems like it is somewhat unbalanced and disintegrated.

As for the particular notes, there are hints of cabbage and spearmint in the aroma emerging from the leaves and milk & custard in the empty cup scent. Fairly unusual range of aromas for a gyokuro, but they are so weak that they cannot take the center stage.

As expected first two infusions have a strong umami with a brothy / salty profile, which, unfortunately is not very well integrated with the green, vegetal aspects of the tea. Flavours of corn, spaghetti squash, butter, grass, asparagus, okra, green beans are among the ones I detected.

Bummer. I was going to order some Yuuki-Cha gyokuro too for Shincha but held off as it’s always so hit or miss for me.
