Gyokuro Pinnacle (40g/1.41oz)


Nickname Allen Manning - Tea Student   (United States)
Review This Gyokuro survived 4 full steeps with my favorite parameters:

Leaf/Water Ratio: 6g per 100ml
Steep 1: room-temp for 14 minutes
Steep 2: 60c for 90 seconds
Steep 3: 65c for 90 seconds
Steep 3: 70c for 90 seconds

I say this tea was quite delicious. Thick and syrupy the first steep, with mild aromas of parsley, grass, and a porky meatiness. Flavor was on the brighter side, notes of boiled corn, broccoli stems, algae/nori, some playful bitterness in later steeps, and a slight lemony aftertaste in the first steep.
