Gyokuru Green Tea

Thank you to Pekko Teas for this delicious sample!   Dry, this tea smells grassy and light with a touch of sweetness.  I steeped 1.5 tsp for 3 minutes in 75 degree Celsius water.

This may be one of the best smelling green teas in my cupboard! As you can see from the picture, it has a lovely golden green hue that reminds me of honey.   The scent is light and vegetative, with just a hint of sweetness.

Finally! A taste that matches the scent.  My first sip was pleasantly vegetative, with a lingering sweetness and absolutely no bitterness.    This was the perfect tea for my afternoon reading.

I highly recommend this tea to anyone who likes straight green tea.
