Organic Gyokuro (100g/3.53oz)

Review For a long time, I didn't think organic gyokuro even existed. I've had conventional gyokuros from other producers, all of which tasted more or less like sencha, but with a slightly deeper flavor. I was delighted to find gyokuro grown organically from this website for the first time, and tasting it has changed my perspective on what fine tea can and should taste like.

I was pleasantly surprised by how mellow and simple the flavor is, and I noticed how other gyokuros that I've tried lack the lingering sweetness of this one. This gyokuro also has virtually no bitterness to it, and a subtle, bright flavor that really speaks to how it was made. It's a totally different tea that stands out among others, and it is definitely a treasure. It's what I imagine gyokuro should be.
Very bad...Bad...Very bad...Ordinary...Good... 5 of 5 Stars!
