45 Tasting Notes
I don’t know what is about this cup, but it is the most delicious cup of Gyokuro I’ve had in a long time. The color is pure light green and aroma gives me a teagasm: grassy sweet and full of goodness that are just impossible to describe. It has sweet aftertaste that lingers in your mouth for a long time and just gets better with each sip. I want to go on in paragraphs about this tea in wax poetry style.
Mmm mmm mm.
I added about 8 pearls of Silver Yin Zhen Pearls and it tastes like a completely different tea! I steeped it for the amount of time for Dragonwell instead of the white tea, because I didn’t want it to become bitter. Adding the Silver Yin Zhen Pearls made the tea smoother and added a little powdery texture.
I added it with Silver Yin Zen Pearls. The natural taste seems subdued and the tea is smoother. I prefer it unmixed.
I only steeped it a little over the amount of time for the Gyokuro, and Silver Yin requires about 3 more minutes than that, so maybe I didn’t get enough of the two flavors together.
