UJI GYOKURO

Tea type: Green Tea

Brand: ??

How to prepare it: 2 minutes and 30 seconds at 50°C (122 °F)


Dry scent:

Really aromatic with huge fruity notes - papaya and mango -; then the usual herbal notes typical of japanese teas arises, with a strong chlorophyll and also a few tannins, recalling a little bit to wood. Sometimes it shows a not se well defined prickly scent.


Liquor's colour:

Pale yellowish.


Liquor's scent:

It's coherent with its dry scent, especially for

what concern the chlorophyll side.


Taste:

Full-bodied with huge herbal notes. At first it shows a few sour hints together with the chlorophyll ones. Then there are some tannins, which increase the thickness of this tea, but sometimes their taste overcome all the other ones. There is also a sweet background, which balance all these flavours. It leaves a clean and light aftertaste with sweet herbal notes.


Conclusion:

Really a good Gyokuro green tea, which

sometimes shows a little bit too much tannins, but extremely enjoyable.

My score is: 8/10
