drank Gyokuro Kabuse by t Leaf T
220 tasting notes

Its a Sunday, I’m stuck at work for what is day 6 of 9 and I needed a pick-me-up in the form of an expensive tea so I could feel indulged. Gyokuro Kabuse is less buttery than my favourite (and doubley expensive) Hon Gyokuro, but is still really delicious. You get a hint of something greenish on the back of your tongue, like a small reminder that you are infact drinking a green tea instead of some magical delicate butter drink. I recommend a pot of this for when you’re having a day where a new pair of shoes or a packet of Hon Gyokuro would normally put a smile on your face, but you can’t afford either.
