Organic steamed green tea from Japan.

Unlike regular green tea, Guyokuro Yamashiro (literally “Jade Dew”) is shaded prior to plucking, so it’s dark, extra-energizing and extremely rare outside of Japan.

I got this iced and unsweetened from a davids tea in a mall I was at. I needed to buy more tea like I need another hole in my head, but I was desperate for something unsweetened to drink so I stopped in. I had a look at their tea tumblers but it looked like they have changed suppliers since the construction of their matcha maker compared to pictures I’ve seen online is different. I was less than impressed with it as the button felt shoddy especially for the cost so no knew teaware for me.

I regretted not getting the gyokuro hot as it was super buttery iced. It was still good, but buttery was mostly what I got out of it. It being from the end of the tin and from last years harvest probably didn’t help any. Still they offered to sell me an ounce for 99 cents which I’m still a little sad I didn’t take them up on because of the previously mentioned size of my tea hoard. I’m also semi regretting not trying their quince charming as if it does any justice to the quince flavor I would have enjoyed it immensely. Maybe next time…
